This palace is OK, but is plain compared to the other palaces in Sanssouci Park. Tours are only in German. Skip if short on time.

There is no audioguide for this, you must go on tour in done in German. German speakers were clearly getting a lot more info than on the placard we got. Mostly underwhelming compared to Sanssoucci and the New Chambers, so I would not recommend this...More

Berliner Residenz Konzerte consisted of a dinner at the Palace with excellent food: salad, filet and pear tart, and a concert of Mozart's masterpieces. Considering they were feeding 150 people I expected not great food of a German fare. Everything was wonderful. The salad fresh,...More

With only eleven rooms, Charlottenhof Castle is hardly a palace; but as a country cottage for the crown prince and his wife, it made a lovely retreat. Renowned architect FrederichSchinkel designed it following the Greek style he favored over heavier Roman Neoclassicism, and the main...More
