Its a very beautiful and impressive summer palace amidst huge park. Its architecture is so unique, brackets in shape of males and females are amazing.

The park itself is unmissable. Like Versailles or Schonbrunn in Vienna, this is a must see treasure place. It is worth coming to Berlin to just see this place and nothing else.

As the park, the palace is very beautiful and of high quality. It's worth visiting at all times of day and year as well.
