Location:
Spandauer Damm 20-24, 14059 Berlin

Facts:

  • Designed by architect  Johann Arnold Nering
  • Built for Sophie Charlotte, the first Queen of Prussia
  • Hosts exhibition on Prussian royalty

The magnificent Charlottenburg palace is part of Berlin since more than 300 years – the construction was completed in 1713. Today it hosts a quite interesting exhibition about the royalty of Prussia and Brandenburg from the Baroque age until the early 20th century.
The palace is designed in a baroque and rococo style – and looks like a legit fairy tale castle, especially from the inside, where you will walk through a dream of gold, silver, pink, red and basically any color of the rainbow.

Are you clever as a fox? Even if not, the tiniest Berlin knowledge will be sufficient to get this question right: in which of Berlin’s twelve districts can you find the breathtaking Charlottenburg Palace? ….any idea?

Of course it, in Charlottenburg – as the palaces’ name already indicated. Congratulations on your (hopefully) correct answer. If you are curious to find out more about the name of the palace and its district don’t forget to listen to our talk below!
