Climbing the broad steps that lead up to the palace, the impressive façade above a cascade of terraces is revealed in all its glory. The rear façade facing the main courtyard is flanked by a semi-circular colonnade. Inside, the rooms are skilfully decorated in rich Rococo style. Note the cedar wood library and the concert room, both masterpieces of Prussian Rococo, and the famous Marble Room. The Voltaire Room boasts a charming decor of painted flowers and sculpted fruits.
