I recommend purchasing tickets in advance because the lines to enter can be quite long. This is a large palace with 35 state rooms restored for viewing. This is the palace with the Amber Room. Amazing art floor to ceiling.

Not one of the palaces used for state functions, but more the apartments the royal family used in the summer - along with numerous 'follies' located around the lake that is part of the estate
