The palace itself is beautiful, even on a rainy day like I experienced. Great photo opportunities all around and the grounds are vast and beautiful; great to explore.

Beautiful palace. Lots of history. Huge gardens. Very peaceful. Not very crowded. Fairly easy to get to, we used the U. Very protected, as there were guides in each room as you walked around. Good commentary on the audio you used as you walked through the palace. Would've loved to have been able to meet Sophie, she seemed she was... More

Went there on an evening around 18:00 and that's the time they close the palace, so haven't seen the inside but the outside it's truly amazing. Even the fences around the residency are amazing. Worth a visit while in Berlin. Easy commute by U-bahn.

the beautiful palace & gardens are worth a visit. its a pity it was so badly damaged during the war as it would be nice to see it before it in its original condition. A nice history lesson.

We tried to go here first on a Monday (it's closed) and got some great outdoor photos...although sticking a bright pink neon bin in the middle of the courtyard did ruin some of the shots. The palace is lovely and the tour is well structured. The niggle for me though is they make you buy a photography pass to allow... More

This Palace is located in the heart of Berlin. We did not visit the exhibitions but walked in the park belonging to. Although we saw more beautiful and beter mainted palceses with parks in other Eurpean cities it is a Nice place to Go if you want to gesmout of the Bush hussle of the city for some time.

Since the castle has been deeply destroyed during WW most of the furniture and finishings are not original from this specific castle.The ones who have visited Versailles will be disappointed like I was. If you have little time in Berlim, just visit the garden because that is actually worth it. No ticket needed to visit the gardens.
