I decided to visit the palace, its grounds, and the various out buildings on the property instead of cycling with friends. I could have spent a full day there. There is an option to buy individual tickets for each location or to buy a pass for the whole property. The palace has been continuously renovated since the end of the... More

Well worth a visit e17 gets you in here and also The New Palace. Some of the rooms are quite awesome particularly the porcelien room - porcelien in every form you can imagine. There are also nice gardens to wonder around and a mausoleum. Worth about 3 hours of your time.

It's not so great as one might think. In my second visit to Berlin I skipped this one during my tour. I preferred to see Sans Souci palace.

This is a lovely palace to visit in Berlin with beautiful gardens based upon those at Versailles. The palace is beautiful and is very unique as Queen Charlotte seemed to be a porcelain hoarder! There is porcelain everywhere and onspectacular room that is completely decorted- walls and all- in porcelain. The price is very affordable and the English audioguide is... More

The problem with Charlottenburg neighbourhood is that all the attractions are far from each other. So if you have time to go all the way to Charlottenburg Palace, it is a beautiful landmark, and the sight is really worth it. But I wouldn't plan my schedule around it if my time in Berlin was limited.

My husband, daughter & I visited the palace whilst on a 4 day trip to Berlin as it was in the top 10 places to visit. We were slightly underwhelmed on arrival as there is scaffolding around part of the palace while it is under refurbishment. Whilst we appreciate this has to be done it did spoil the wow factor...

we took a familypass which is only 25€ for 2 adults and up to 4 children and allows you to visit the lower and upper floors, the new wing, the villa and the Belvedere. The castle is still being renovated, but the rooms open to the public are worth wile. Inspired on Versailles. Take a stroll in the parc and... More

We chose to visit on our Sunday morning and it was a great option. Open from 10am this allows for a slow morning leaving at 9am to travel sedately by underground. 15 minute walk from the subway to the Schloss but a very pretty walk and, had we come earlier, there are plenty of places to stop for breakfast on...

We got the full ticket, that allows you to see all of the buildings on the grounds. Both the old castle and the new wing are really interesting, but after 2h of listening to the audio about porcelain and tapestry, didn`t want to see the other smaller buildings in the garden. Even though almost everything that we saw was a... More

My friend and I made a huge effort to go all the way over to Charlottenburg by many metro trains and were quite let down. The building itself was a lovely sight to see but we couldn't go in as they were too expensive just to have a tour in some rooms.

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.
