Top sights in Berlin
The history of the Schloss runs deep. It began as the summer palace of King Friederich III's wife Sophie Charlotte. Today it’s the grandest palace you’ll find in Berlin. Worth a visit all year round, it is especially magical at Christmas market season.
Destroyed and reconstructed during WWII in perfect Schinkel fashion, this prime example of Charlottenburg Palace interior demonstrates day-to-day German royal life.
The classical mausoleum located in the gardens is humbling with its red granite columned entrance.
This quaint lookout building holds one of the greatest special collections in Germany. Its porcelain display is divided by purpose: tea and coffee, dinnerware, and decoration.
The only free part of the park, the giant baroque park of Charlottenburg Palace is truly a sight to behold with its ever-stretching lawn and giant fountain.
Complete your unforgettable evening with a classical concert - the orchestra even wears period dress!
Be sure to arrive early to avoid the crowds. No excuses with the relaxed opening time of 10:00AM.
Each building charges separately for admission, so it’s best to buy a day pass to access everything except the Neuer Flügel.

What people are saying about Charlottenburg Palace
You are in for a fabulously entertaining evening, musically and otherwise: a varied and uplifting musical programme by the brilliant Residenz Orchestra and its soloists in Rococo costumes , including singers, not to mention the wonderful setting of the Charlottenburg Palace Orangerie, where the accustics are surprisingly good. A charming and witty master of ceremonies leads through the evening in English and German. A treat!
It was easy to order and then collect the cards at the airport when we arrived in Berlin. They gave us free travel in the whole Berlin area including Potsdam which we also visited. This was brilliant as Berlin is a large city and you can't cover everything on foot. The discounts in museums and other attractions was a bonus.
Food was terrible. The worst meal I have ever had. There simply are no words to describe how bad it was. Room was so hot that you could not breathe. The dinner dragged along for two hours. Torture. Save your money. Just attend the concert which is absolutely amazing!
We had 3 days in Berlin the transport ticket is a must with all the different systems of transport available in Berlin. No looking for ticket machines just get on and ride. The guide can be read and cherry picked to give you good daily tours out to suit you.
If you ever experienced the Bateaux Mouches in Paris, rest assured this is much better in any sense. It is much less crowded, it serves food and drinks, and the audio-guide is individual, free and VERY informative. Very pleasant ride!
