Great place to visit, especially on a cold day. Lots of walking though and you need to enter twice as the wings are separate - get a ticket that covers both. Interesting to see the difference in decor in the two wings.

Unfortunately when we visited the palace it seemed to be closed on a Monday and there appeared to be a lot of work going on. So would suggest checking first before visiting

The palace is undoubtedly beautiful on the outside and they have clearly spent a great deal of time and money restoring it. Unfortunately there was a large fire during the second world war and so much of the satin on the wall has had to be replicated. Many of the rooms are empty but there is some furniture there to...

We visited the palace mainly to see the Christmas market which we thought was the best but were intrigued by the light show that was projected onto the palace and the surrounding buildings.Another imposing building with a history of its own.

We visited at Christmas 2014 and the Christmas market was being set up outside (although that was not our main focus). In retrospect, it was one of the best sites we saw because it was not packed (something we loved about many of the sites of Berlin in comparison to Paris or London), You could really see the rooms and...

Great historical palace with some wonderful decorations, and lovely grounds too. I took my parents and they loved it.

It's quite far from downtown Berlin and not worth the time spent to get there. Wouldn't recommend the detour.

Impressed as we walked up. Fairytale palace. Fairly interesting walking around the interiors but similar to many other buildings elsewhere. Worth a visit but won't return.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
