Well kept, well preserved, with fine gardens and view of the lake. Lots of walking to get there and additional charges for entry, guide, translation, etc., etc. It wouldn't be on the top of my list in Potsdam unless you had unlimited time.

Very nice visit, the palace is very beautiful and even the view from it is very nice. Too bad one has to walk all the way there (I imagine not so pleasant in winter) and the tour is mandatory and not always in English.

Not so much as to admire its beautiful gardens and architecture. Near schloss Cecilienhof so you get like more sight seeing for one place. parking is ok.

Potsdam is full of palaces, and this one is just another one - nice well maintained bulding in a beautiful park. I think it is ok just to visist the Sansoucci and other to see from outside, unless you are a history student of history freak.

Although I was rather tired by the time I reached this palace after visiting various other Potsdam attractions, I am really glad I made the effort to get there. I walked through the Neue Garten from Cecilienhof, which is an excellent walk, but few others seem to do this.
The customer service at the palace was excellent - so much better than the bad experience i'd had at the other palace where you need to wear the slippers. My guide was very new (I believe it was her first day), but she had a very pleasant disposition and was happy to go around at the pace that a visitor might desire. The audio guides were very informative, and made it clear which parts of the displays were original, and which were reproductions (something many museums seem to avoid doing).
With it being quiet it was easy to take photos and view the key attractions without waiting for others to move away.
