This palace, as many other buildings, suffered heavily from the bombings. But the way it was renovated is amazing! Starting from an un-burnt piece of wallpaper they rediscovered the pattern and created the room again. I particularly liked the ceiling of the ball room, which...More

The palace is wonderful. If you have the Berlin card you have a discount for 25%. In summer you can visit all the 6 (I think )places , but in winter are open to visit only 4 of them. Inside the palace is spectacular and...More

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

Hello there, My girlfriend and I are going on a dinner&concert at Charlottenburg Palace on New Years. Is there a dress code? We were thinking a smart casual outfit, does that sound ok?

Germany is really not that big on dress codes. Smart Casual should be just fine.

Looks already pretty good, I'd say. What do you intend to see or do in Grunewald forest, the Gleis 17 memorial at the station? Wouldn't it be better and easier to visit Kurfuerstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse with the KaDeWe department store in former West Berlin instead, if you already are in Tiergarten and Charlottenburg? I don't think Tuesday is packed. You'll need some time for the Topography of Terror and the Jewish Museum, but East Side Gallery, the river and Oberbaumbridge won't...More
