Best for Romance - Expert review of Schloss Charlottenburg
This enormous Baroque palace was originally conceptualiSed as a summer home, although plans quickly expanded into a larger building. It was completed in 1699 for Sophie Charlotte, wife of Elector Frederick III, who eventually crowned himself “King in Prussia” (as opposed to King of Prussia, to avoid offending the Polish areas of Prussia). The palace is surrounded by impressive gardens and the interior rooms are mini-museums, collections of masterful works of art and room decor. In fact, the palace is home to the largest collection of 18th-century French paintings outside of France. Though partially destroyed in the Second World War, the palace is remarkably intact today.
General admission to the Old Palace is 10 euros, and 7 euros for discounts. Admission to the new wing is 6 euros or 5 euros with a discount. There is 3 euros charge for photography permission.
