I try to like attractions of this type, but I just don't get it! I continue to try and that's why my wife and I took the trip out of town to visit the Palace. If the place was a little more convenient to town I wouldn't have minded, but it was a couple of train trips and a walk... More

I believe that the price of the ticket was expensive for the size of the report of the palace, given that most of it was under renovation. Best just to expedite the beautiful gardens is free.

After visitin Versailles in Paris, some Palaces in Austria - I was sceptical that this one would make some impression to me. However, the exposition is quite well organized, rich in fourniture and there is definitely what to see. Gardens and lake, next to the river makes good place to walk around, get some rest, relax. Very nice place to... More

We decided to visit as my niece is "Charlotte" and we were enchanted by the experience. The gardens are lovely and we really enjoyed our walk around this special place

I'm not a palace fan and, so, after having gone to many of them, all of them rated "must see" in guidebooks for one international city or another, I've decided to swear off of them. For one thing, I'm too much of an American and I don't like the idea of royalty. For another, most of these places are completely... More

The home itself is nice but the gardens are magnificent. While we were there they were replacing some of the flowers. The plants which are usually kept in the orangery were on display outdoors. The pond and fountains are quite pretty. Very easy to get to and should be a place everyone see at least the gardens. Beautiful apartments across... More

We visited the grounds of Charlottenburg Palace at night. The stunning special effects/lighting display was just amazing on a cold dark Winters night. I thought it was such a wonderful idea to have a market here - full of people, sounds and smells to bring the whole area alive. Charlottenburg Palace Christmas Market was one of the best markets we... More

Good guarded castle. A lot different rooms with historic details. You get headphones that will guide you around the castle. There is also a park that you can walk into. A nice pice of history.
