This castle is located inside Sanssouci Park, where other 4 palaces and castles were built. Of them all, Charlottenhof seems to be the one that less care gets, as it seems totally left behind and forgoten. It is a pitty as the building is small,...More

The guide was very nice and because all of the people were speaking English she explained everything only in English and not in German. It was nice and fun to hear all the stories and explanations.

It's the only place in whole Sanssouci Park, where you need to join guided tour to get inside. Tours start every hour or when the group reaches minimum number of participants. We decided not to wait, as we just missed the tour, and we would...More
