Guided tour through the plant halls and the heating corridor of the orangery

Hundreds of palms, agaves, laurel and orange trees adorn the Prussian parks in summer. Well protected they spend the winter in the orangeries, which were built by the Prussian kings for this purpose.


One of them is the more than 300-meter-long orangery in Sanssouci Park, which King Frederick William IV had built between 1851 and 1864 according to his own designs. In addition to the stately central building of the Orangery Palace - built in the style of an Italian Renaissance villa - the imposing three-winged complex comprises a western and an eastern plant hall, which still serve as winter quarters for cold-sensitive subtropical potted plants.

The guided tour through the impressive plant hall and the heating corridor of the orangery informs about the exotic plants and the various historical heating systems, some of which are still in use today.
