  • The palace is another level of beautiful. It is gigantic and majestic. You can learn about it's history inside or just enjoy it's fantastic architecture and the garden on the back as well. The flowers, the lake, the swans... it just makes the palace unique. One of the must see sights in Berlin. It takes about half an hour, 40 minutes with a 50cc scooter to get there.
  • Best place i ever been to. So peaceful and quiet at the morning. Beautiful garden/park at the back, really fine looking. You can go there for a morning run, it's gorgeous there. If you're first time to Berlin you definitely need to visit this place.
