Comfortable for Frederick’s anniversary
Berlin, 19. April 2012 On 28 April, the “Friederisiko” opens – the popular time-slot tickets for the exhibition can now be booked through www.visitBerlin.de. The great show in the New Palace is the highpoint of Frederick the Great’s 300th birthday anniversary year. The focus is on the king as an individual – his likings and habits. One can see things that cast light on the daily life of the Prussian monarch, from his reading room to a menu. 70 rooms have been opened for the visitors – more than ever before. The organisers expect around 300,000 visitors to the spectacular exhibition, which will be open until 18 October. The ticket price is 17.40 euros, concessions 13 euros. Children aged seven or less pay 2.50 euros.
