Castello di Charlottenburg e Isola dei Pavoni

Come dono del principe elettore Friedrich III alla moglie Sophie Charlotte, fu eretto alla fine del XVII secolo. L'antica residenza estiva fu ampliata dai successori e trasformata in un lussuoso edificio di rappresentanza. Oggi è il più splendido esempio di architettura barocca della capitale.

Charlottenburg Palace is the largest and most magnificent palace in Berlin. Inaugurated in 1699 and originally planned as a small garden palace, it has been repeatedly extended and remodelled by famous architects such as Eosander of Goethe, Georg Wenceslaus von Knobelsdorff and Carl Langhans. In addition to sumptuous halls and galleries Charlottenburg Palace is now also home to an impressive art collection, including masterpieces by Watteau. The palace park is a large baroque garden and home to the Belvedere teahouse and the Mausoleum of Queen Luise and Friedrich Wilhelm III.
