New palace Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

This "boast", as Friedrich II qualified it, is the largest palace in Potsdam. The king wanted to demonstrate that the economic power of Prussia remained intact after emerging victorious from the arduous Seven Years War. It was intended to house the royal family. It required the skills of thousands of craftsmen and was built in the Rococo style, so beloved of Frederick the Great, even though the style had become outmoded. Its extravagance and ostentation are such that it is not to be missed. It is located in the park of Sanssouci.
