Lovely palace and stunning grounds to walk around! Plus a great restaurant for lunch. Easily reachable on any of the tour buses and on public transport.

For a treat we booked the meal and concert. The concert was okay, very nice classical music and authentically produced but the meal was a total rip off. Wonderful setting mind you, but for £30 each I expected more than delicious bread and baby-size portions of food. They ran out of soup. I ask you? How can they run out... More

The palace is well worth visiting and they provide an interesting audio tour included in the price. You can get a worthwhile discount on the regular admission price by using your Berlin card discount. It really is amazing to see how well this palace has been rebuilt and restored considering it was virtually destroyed in the second world war. We... More

i absolutely loved visiting the palace. With audio tour included in the price of the ticket I didn't think the price too bad, but expensive for Berlin at around €12 each. The audiotour was great. Just the right amount of facts without being boring. Something I do recommend is making sure you go into the rooms without audio tour. There... More

The palace is pretty in itself and you get to see a lot of the interior, much of which is recently rebuilt/ restored. The audio guide, included in the price,is well done and enhances the visit.

A short walk from the U Bahn this palace is most beautiful and a reasonable price, the grounds are also spectacular, I imagine in the summer it would be splendid. The Christmas market made it very special

An experience of a genteel past. I had the pleasure of attending a concert at the place, which was held in The Orangery. Musicians & singers portrayed an evenings entertainment from the 17th century by their costumes & classical music. I was so privileged to be there & would certainly like to return.

The palace was what you would expect - excellent interiors and a wealth of artefacts, but the Christmas market didn't compare to the centre of Berlin market - getting there wasn't the easiest journey - we wouldn't want it to rain as you would get soaked by the time it took to walk from the U-bahn to the castle!

If you think the British can brag with royal jewels, dining sets and palaces with beautiful furnishings, go and see this! Germany's royalty went all the way at no cost spared. Fortunately they managed to rescue or preserve the huge quantities of crockery, cutlery and dinner services in WW2, but most rooms had to be rebuilt to original specifications. Buy... More

Utilising the Palace as the backdrop, this Xmas Market is scenically absolutely spectacular. Added to that, with no noisy funfair, there is no distraction; stalls are quality and the food and drink available exceptionally good examples of the best a German Market can offer. Really a fantastic evening out for all ages - not to be missed if in Berlin... More
