Charlottenburg Palace: Tour Highlights

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.

Met in the foyer by staff in period costume who welcomed and introduced the evening (more seating would be helpful). The dinner portions were small but the food itself was very good, as was the wine! Something of a delay before a wine waiter arrived but we still managed to consume 3 bottles between 4 of us during dinner. We moved into the concert hall after dinner and the concert started on time. The musicians and singers, who were dressed in period costume, were all excellent as was the master of ceremonies. An extremely enjoyable experience.

The cooperatation with other bus transfer programs was very helpful as we could see all the sites with shorter time, all audios were in function. The team were very kind and helpful, only the meeting point @ Aleksander place was not good defined as was mentioned beside Holiday Inn and it was more near to Park Inn

Best of Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour Ticket Reviewed by

Dave was an amazing guide! Did not have much knowledge about Germany’s history but after this trip, I went and checked a lot of spots suggested by him. Left Berlin with a great deal of knowledge. Great experience overall!

Welcome Card and discounts at various sites was very useful. You do need to use quite a lot of public transport etc to make an overall saving, taking cost of the card into account, since fares are relatively cheap.

This welcome card gave us unlimited access to public transport for 48hrs. Trams, buses and trains. Public transport in Berlin is excellent and so easy to figure it all out. We certainly got our monies worth
