  • Knew absolutely nothing about Charlotte and her love of Chinese porcelain. But beyond her and the beautfiul collection of porcelain, an interesting history. Great visit.  more »
  • C is majestic. A must see. What a pleasure to discover the history of Germany before the wars. The decorations are gorgeous. Several parties to do. The main Castle is enough but if you want more c is possible with the annexes. Locker room and audio guide in several languages. A supplement of €3 to take pictures inside. The gardens can be visited for free. In winter the Lake is frozen and some skating.

  • We visited Charlottenburg just before Christmas, so it had its Christmas Market outside. Restoration has taken place following war time bombing and they have done a good job! We enjoyed richly decorat...  more »

  • A recreation of the palace that has been under construction or reconstruction for most of its long life. Beautiful building with impressive gardens to the rear but weeds and waste ground to the front of the 'new' wing. Worth the visit but it's a long day. Staff that greet you are delightful but those in the rooms are like library attendants keen to pass you through with as little disturbance as possible.
  • Wonderful place, we were with my mother because of a tipp of my wife and we enjoyed it, lovely paths and a stream in the backyard. Beautiful sights and peaceful to take a break or a nap on three grass. I recommended this old castle with fabulous gardens that they keep in the old English and baroque style. Definitively deserve a visit you won't regret it.
  • This is a nice place to spend half a day if you’re in Berlin and have time. There are some rooms in the palace that are exceptionally beautiful, however, due in part to the war, most do not have original furnishings and many have been reproduced to mimic the originals. A great spot for history buffs, as the audio guides give detailed descriptions of the palace’s history, including its prior tenants, however, there are many other palaces/castles in Europe that exude a greater sense of decadence and majesty, and at a cost of 20€ (including a 3€ photography permission fee) to see the entire palace, it’s a relatively expensive experience.
  • With a ticket you can visit the interiors which is quite nice with a free audio guide. The staff is not the most polite though. Carrying a camera requires a different photography ticket. The outer section of the palace also is very spacious and has a nice garden, pond and a walking trail with good views of the palace.
  • Beautiful palace. Easy to get to with the U2 metro. Give yourself 3 hours to property visit the old and new wings plus the wonderful gardens. Definitely get the audio guide to get some historical context on the building and the family that lives there .the audio guides are free!. There are two more buildings in the grounds I haven't seen them yet but maybe they are worth a visit
