Charlottenburg Palace

Charlottenburg Palace


Charlottenburg Palace was built in the late 17th century as a summer residence for Queen Sophie Charlotte, for whom it was named. The magnificent palace complex is surrounded by an impressive baroque garden in which the New Pavilion, the Mausoleum, and the Belvedere – which once served the court as a tea house – are located. 


Today, the grounds of Charlottenburg Palace measure 55 hectares. The original gardeners created the landscaping in a French style, but in 1786 their work was converted into an English landscape garden.

 

Today, Charlottenburg Palace not only invites Berlin residents and tourists alike to stroll through the gardens and enjoy all kinds of events, but also houses a collection of architectural showpieces, masterful paintings of the French Rococo, and other splendid works of fine art – especially from the Romantic and Biedermeier periods.

 


The Great Orangery


The Great Orangery at Charlottenburg Palace, built between 1709 and 1712, originally served as a winter home for the botanical collection of precious citrus plants. During the summer months, when the more than 500 orange and lemon trees adorned the baroque garden, the Orangery provided a magnificent venue for various festivities of the Prussian royal court. 


Following house tradition, today the opulent, light-flooded ballrooms of the Great Orangery continue to offer a festive setting for banquets, concerts and events of all kinds.

 

Former Court Theater  (Museum)


The classical, three-story court theater was built in 1788 at the western end of Charlottenburg Palace to present featured highlights for courtly festivities. 


Following destruction in the Second World War, only the building’s exterior was reconstructed. Recently reopened, the former court theater is now a contemporary, wheelchair-accessible building. 


The building holds four spacious rooms on the ground- and first floors with a total presentation area of approximately 1,200 square meters that can be used for events,.

 

New Wing (White Hall)


This self-contained, easternmost addition to Charlottenburg Palace was nearly demolished during the Second World War.


Today, the largely reconstructed New Wing contains two illustrious ballrooms, which can normally be visited only as part of a museum tour: the magnificent Golden Gallery, and the White Hall – which was personally inaugurated by Frederick the Great in 1742. 


Formerly a dining hall and now part of the museum, the White Hall flaunts royal flair and first-class acoustics.


In other rooms of the New Wing you can admire numerous works of art including classical-romantic sculptures and French painting.


Please note that the White Hall is NOT wheelchair accessible.
