Lower Royal Suite In Potsdam’s New Palace Restored
Since 2007, thanks to an American-German collaboration, the Berlin-Brandenburg Prussian Palaces and Garden Foundation (SPSG) has been able to undertake the restoration of the Lower Royal Suite in Sanssouci’s New Palace. The restoration of these splendid guest apartments was made possible by support from the East German Savings Bank Foundation and the Central Brandenburg Savings Bank in partnership with World Monuments Fund (WMF), an American organization based in New York. For this project, WMF, through its Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve Our Heritage, and the East German Savings Bank Foundation were partners in supporting the restoration of the Lower Royal Suite.
“I am very pleased that, together, we have succeeded in preserving this “Frederician” jewel and making it publically accessible. The Lower Royal Suite is sure to become one of the biggest draws in our exhibition, ‘Friederisiko’,” on Frederick the Great, said Harmut Dorgerloh, general manager of the SPSG.
