Our first stop in Berlin was the Charlottenburg Palace. It's the only surviving royal palace in Berlin. The central portion of the Palace was completed in 1699 with additions added later. The self guided audio tour provided a great introduction to the Palace and allowed visitors to explore at their own pace. Wonderful examples of baroque and rococo styles are... More

We took a cycle round the palace gardens and they looked very impressive (it was January so not much in the way of greenery beyond the grass). I think in summer this would be a fantastic place for a walk away from the traffic of the city and it borders the Spree which is lovely. You are only allowed to... More

We visited this last Friday using the Yellow tour bus trip which drops you outside the Palace. The Palace tour which we would recommend you get the earphone guide for is well laid out and very informative, It is divided into the old palace and the new wing. It was quiet when we went and there is so much to... More

When we came there in beginning of 2015, there was reparation is in progress. So basically it disrupt the beauty of the building. The best view of the building is from the park section. One thing to be aware here, the place is quite far from train station. I take at least 15 mins walking from closest station to this... More

For a piece of ‘classical’ German history, this summer palace has to be seen. You have the choice of the ‘original’ palace and/or the new wings to visit as options. Audio guides are a part of the entrance price and I would highly recommend this. The information is well detailed, concise and helps in your understanding of what you are... More

The staff were very kind to start with - we showed our handicapped cards and we were simply told we could go in for free. We only paid 3 Euros to be able to take photos - and this was really appreciated because most attractions do not allow taking photos. The different rooms were beautiful - comparable to the most...

An historical place and a must see in berlin. We spent 5 days in Berlin and were looking for a nice place to visit on new years day when everything's closed, The palace is located something like 15 stations from Alexanderplatz on the metro and then you have to walk for 15 min. The garden surrounds the palace in pretty... More

This was probably my favourite thing that I did in Berlin. The staff were super helpful and gave me a great audio guide which spoke about the history of this Schloss. This made it just that much better. The rooms are stunning and it is something I will never forget. HIGHLY recommended!

An excellent walk from he station towards Schloss Charlottenburg. The location is not as close to other main attractions in Berlin, but it's definitely worth the visit if you have the time. Even viewing just from outside, like what I did, is worth it.
