This palace cannot be visited on your own, there are only scheduled visits at fix hours. It was by chance that we were here when the tour started, I recommend that you document in advance. The palace is beautiful, it has a unique room, organized...More

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 palace is OK, but is plain compared to the other palaces in Sanssouci Park. Tours are only in German. Skip if short on time.

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
