Best for long exposures at night, don't forget your tripod! The garden complex is quite sizeable, so allow some time to stroll around and explore various corners of it.

This is a stunningly pretty reconstruction associated with a palace courtyard. There are beautiful buildings, fountains, and statues throughout. The area is under constant reconstruction. It is definitely worth the time to drive out if you are in Berlin.
