Another missable attraction. The architecture is extremely average. It is part of the palace grounds.

This was one of our favourites castles in the area, and with a German-speaking tour guide leading us around, we very much enjoyed seeing the castle's interior. There are some wonderful rooms in the castle, and amazing artefacts and furnishings. Well worth visiting.

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
