Marmorpalais, or Marble Palace in English, is the former royal residence in Potsdam, Germany, outside of Berlin. It sits on the grounds of the Neuer Garten along the shores of the Heiliger Lake. It was designed in a Neoclassical style in the late 1700s and remained as the home of royalty until the early 20th century. Today the palace serves as a museum and is open to the public. Visitors can explore the interiors and see early classical furniture and detailed arches, which have different designs in almost every room.
The Marble Palace also has several marble fireplaces and ancient sculptures that were obtained from Italy. Local trees were used for creating the high quality wood floors and other detailed aspects of the palace. Some of the walls are covered in fine silks. Other impressive items on display here include two grandfather clocks and an extensive collection of ceramic vases. Most of the rooms have been preserved in their original state, giving visitors a good look at how royalty lived.
The Marble Palace is located at Im Neuen Garten 10 in Potsdam. Opening hours are November through March, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm; April, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 6pm; May through October, Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 6pm. Admission is 5 euros.
