The Palace has been widely rebuilt and whilst purists may claim this means one is not seeing the original it can also be argued that, given the Germanic historical thoroughness of the restoration one is seeing it as it would have been intended to be...More

We didn't take a tour inside the palace, so I can't comment on that part. But if you are interested in just walking the gardens and the huge park behind it, that is all free and is a great way to spend a sunny day.

Checking out palaces is definitely something to do in Europe. So when stopping in Berlin, Charlottenburg was on our list. Based upon our experiences on the grounds, we could've passed on seeing this. The grounds were poorly up kept, the surrounding areas had temporary fences...More

You can imagine what grandeur this palace once afforded "Sophie Charlotte". An unfortunate casualty of WWII bombings, it has been partially restored to it's originality. Rooms surviving the bombings have been furnished making them comparable to those viewed at "Versailles". The gardens are extensive, unfortunately...More

Despite the renovations going on this was a fantastic place to visit. The Palace and the artworks and furniture are splendid and the gardens an absolute joy to wander through. Humour was provided (unintentionally I think) by an attendant seeking to prevent unauthorised photography.

The biggest prussian palace in Berlin. Well Kept grounds & rooms. Well staffed. I'd recommend buying the ticket to see the whole hotel! The old palace section is lovely but the New wing is the most spectacular! Each section has mind blowing decor! So seeing...More

While most of the palace is reconstructed due to heavy damage during the war, the preservation of artifacts and history is quite impressive. An audio guide comes include with the tour, very helpful!! Unfortunately the gardens were closed when I visited.

This is a wonderful palace built by the King of Prussia for his wife. We were there with a great guide and this was actually the beginning of the tour so one could get their history straight. There are only several areas of the palace...More

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

We were there in July and there were no long lines. Combined ticket allows access to four buildings including mausoleum and is definitely worth doing.
