Awesome place to relax
Jul 2020 • Couples
A bit underrated sibling of the Sansoucci Park, Neuer Garten is definitely my place of choice for a stroll or a picknick. Perhaps the architecture here is less impressive, but it's still worth to see the Marble Palace and Cecilienhof, while the flower gardens and surrounding lakes will provide great opportunity to sit down for a while and just enjoy the nature.

Nice walk

Even on a cold damp day it was a lovely walk around the Holy Lake. Lots of feature points to find along the way.

Another Treasure in Potsdam
Sep 2019
I’ve reviewed Sanssouci Park as a treasure and the New Garden is certainly another. It has Cecilienhof Palace where the Potsdam Declaration was signed, Marble Palace, plus some beautiful park space and a a few other sights.

Magical place for the picnics, walking trips and historical visiting.
Aug 2019
Incredibly spacious and beautiful park. In this place I first time encountered the fact that I stopped and looked simply at the space in front of me. There was nothing but bushes, trees and grass, but this empty zone seemed spacious, well-groomed and fresh(this park was designed by knowledgeable people). There are several historical sights in the park as the Marble Palace and Cecilienhof Palace. I highly recommend visiting both the park itself and its attractions.

Nice park with pleasan view on water. Cecilienhof Schloss is worse to visit to get know about Potsdam conference.

lovely walk

There is a car park that gives access to the gardens. These provide good walking areas with beautiful views in most directions. As always in this area there are overlays of history - both ancient and recent. Even without the history there are plenty of reasons to visit - We went out of season but we heard that it can get busy with coaches when in season.

Like the other parks in Potsdam, this one is also very beautiful! On the lake side you can find the Marble Palace, the endless green grass invites you to relax and enjoy!

Beautiful Tudor Style Summer Palace
Oct 2018 • Friends
What a beautiful and authentic English Tudor style summer palace that Crown Prince Wilhem had built for his princess Princess Cecelia.

A historical place where Stalin met with Truman and Churchill over the state of countries post WW2.

Now the restaurant has just been refurbished and open to public so it would be lovely to dine here plus it’s a hotel as well!

Wheelchair Access - YES
An English-style landscaped garden-park adopted by many aristocrats and royal families throughout Europe in the C19th.

This is a public space much used for sunbathing - clothed and unclothed.

Other than the main elements of the Marmor Palace and Schloss Cecilienhof (of Potsdam Agreement fame), the park has three less well-known elements:

The Hasengraben - a 350m long canal constructed by Frederick the Great in 1737 to link the Heiliger See (Holy Lake) to Jungfernsee. Friedrich William IV apparently use to row via the canal from the Marmor Palace to the church on the shore of Sacrow every Sunday.

Schwanenbrücke - originally a wooden footbridge that crosses the northern end of the Hasengraben, linking Neuer Garten to Schwanenalle. The current bridge is post-1989. The original is awaiting renovation having fallen into the waters sometime after 1945 but before 1989. The intention is, once funds are in place, to recover and use the original stone-work.

Grünes Haus - which may be interpreted as German wordplay - there aren't any glass greenhouses in the park, but there is this green painted building that acted as accommodation for the park's gardeners.
