In addition to an introduction to the Hohenzollern dynasty, the Old Palace offers rooms and halls that are true to the original, impressive suites of rooms and top-class art collections with outstanding masterpieces. The porcelain cabinet, the palace chapel and the bedroom of Frederick I are among the highlights of the magnificent baroque parade apartments in the tower-crowned Old Palace, built around 1700. This central building of the large palace complex was built on behalf of the witty and art-loving Queen Sophie Charlotte and her husband Friedrich I.

The New Wing, which adjoins the Old Palace to the east, was built as a separate palace on behalf of Frederick II the Great. From 1740 onwards, the grandchildren Sophie Charlotte and Frederick I had ballrooms and apartments set up in the Frederician Rococo style, which after destruction in the Second World War and lengthy restorations are among the most important spatial works of art of this era. In addition to the ballrooms - the Golden Gallery and the White Hall - impressive paintings, including masterpieces by Antoine Watteau, and exquisite furniture.
The “winter chambers” on the upper floor of the new wing, furnished in the early classicist style, were commissioned by Frederick II's nephew and successor, King Friedrich Wilhelm II. used the rooms on the ground floor. Today, outstanding works of art from the early 19th century can be seen here.
