Charlottenburg Palace: Tour Highlights

The history of the Schloss runs deep. It began as the summer palace of King Friederich III's wife Sophie Charlotte. Today it’s the grandest palace you’ll find in Berlin. Worth a visit all year round, it is especially magical at Christmas market season.

Neuer Pavillion

Destroyed and reconstructed during WWII in perfect Schinkel fashion, this prime example of Charlottenburg Palace interior demonstrates day-to-day German royal life.

Mausoleum

The classical mausoleum located in the gardens is humbling with its red granite columned entrance.

Belvedere

This quaint lookout building holds one of the greatest special collections in Germany. Its porcelain display is divided by purpose: tea and coffee, dinnerware, and decoration.

The Gardens

The only free part of the park, the giant baroque park of Charlottenburg Palace is truly a sight to behold with its ever-stretching lawn and giant fountain.

Grosse Orangerie

Complete your unforgettable evening with a classical concert - the orchestra even wears period dress!

What People Are Saying About Charlottenburg Palace

The welcome card travel pass made navigating Berlin so easy.

No need to search for change or worry about how the ticket machines worked, we used the pass from the airport for 5 days travel around Berlin and then back to the airport. No hassle, now worries.

Very helpful. Nice guidebook with suggested tours per day

Very helpful for means of transport. Nice guidebook with suggested tours per day

Worth it for the return train travel from airport to city centre alone

Perfect for taking advantage of Berlin's excellent integrated public transport. Simple to book in advance and collect on arrival at airport. Only slight criticism is there can be queues at the collection point (at airport).

Wonderful, we had a table by window with a reserved table.

Food was excellent and the lights were beautiful. Not sure if we had such a wonderful seat because we booked early and paid, but it was well worth it. Highly recommend this dinner cruise.

We saw a lot and had a good overview of the city

I would recommend this tour as the buses were frequent and live and earphone Commentary was interesting and clear. We had a good mixture of attractions and sites in the tours.
