I have been here twice and I both has been excellent artistically. It is easy to see and hear also from 2nd balcony but of course the 1. floor is better. Also the refreshements during the pause are really good and reasonable priced.

Externally this building is not going to compare to La Fenice, the Royal Opera House or La Scala, the exterior being somewhat uninspiring. Once inside, the design is modern and elegant. Extremely clean and well maintained throughout. Thoroughly professional and helpful staff who are very...More

Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
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
