We have prepared a new Ce-intermetallic compound Ce2Pd3Ge5 crystallizing in the orthorhombic U2Co3Si5-structure, which is related to the CaBe2Ge2-lattice. Specific heat cp, resistivity ρ and magnetic susceptibility χ show antiferromagnetic ordering below TN = 3.8 K. The specific heat cp, corrected for the lattice contributions, is described in terms of mean field theory. Also we derive the low-lying crystalline electric field levels. Our results are compared to those of CePd2Ge2.
