This Schloss was almost completely destroyed in WW II . This place has been beautifully restored with some great Prussian history and way of life on display . It is easily accessible with the excellent public transit system in Berlin and a short walk from the nearest station . The audio guide is also excellent allowing one to visit the... More

Was very fortunate to have a friend whom stayed opposite of the palace (wow, what a place to stay!) and gave me an exterior tour of the palace. The palace has a slight Greek influence with columns of Ionic and Corinthian design. At the back of the palace is this huge Baroque-design garden and it is quite impressive. One thing... More

If you enjoy oggling all things Baroque the old rooms of Charlottenburg palace are fantastic. They have a very french feel to them. Don't forget to look up at the ceiling, as that's the most impressive piece of all! If you're short on time or money the gardens are both free and lovely.

Beautiful palace, more like a museum as it has been restored post WW2 and has replicas and furniture salvaged from the Berlin palace. Expensive for what it is 17€just for palace, not including out houses or side wings. Garden free Bonus Beautiful gardens

Built as a summer residence for Hohenzollern Queen Luise Charlotte, this palace is filled with treasures from the last of the Prussian kings. The post World War II restorations include bringing many of the rooms back to the glory of the original owners. The palace is divided into different separate parts, including the "new" wing build in the 18th Century... More

Well worth the walk the only problem is old wing is not open Mondays so arranged to go Tuesday but no one said on ticket that new wing was not open then bit of a disappointment as it is quite away out of city but very enjoyable and nice cafe tree with good food.

While it was a bit out of the way, definitely don't miss spending some time here. Consider getting some cheap food outside of the palace early. It's self guided and includes a free audio guide. I loved the Porcelain Room, which was filled floor to ceiling with the stuff. The interior was furnished and very lovely, and I think I... More

My husband didn't really want to go but once he got inside he was amazed (and so was I) We had no idea how beautiful this place was and there is an included audioguide that is great. The rooms are stupendous! The rococo, the furniture, it really is one of the prettiest castles I have ever been in. The gardens... More

Got to go and have a look around the rooms, which were really grand and very nice. Got a free audioguide so could wander round at your own pace

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
