Schloss Charlottenburg, Berlin
A visit to Schloss Charlottenburg is highly recommended.
The palace was originally build as a country house for the future Queen Sophie Charlotte in 1695 and was completed in 1790.
There are 70 rooms and corridors crammed full of ornate furnishings and Watteau paintings.
The east wing houses an incredible collection of romanticist paintings while the west wing houses a collection of ancient and prehistoric art and artifacts.
Schloss Charlottenburg was first built by Elector Friedrich III for his wife in 1695, but bombed in 1943 during the 2nd World War. After the war, all the reconstruction was completed in 1966.
The palace is an exquisite Baroque palace and one of the few remaining sites in Berlin that reflects the former splendour and grandeur of the royal Hohenzollern clan. Its landmark central domed tower, which topped by a gilded statue of the goddess Fortuna moving with the wind, has nothing less than Versailles provided the inspiration for the three-wing structure.
I like its Palace Garden and its two Statues at the main entrance. Take a glance at my Schloss Charlottenburg Travelogue for more pictures.
