  • Good place. The park is huge and worth to discover it. The castle looks nice but empty rooms. Only with its decor. No furniture which shows how the residential people who lived how they living in this castle.
  • Very beautiful! All the rooms in the palace had been very carefully designed and furnished by the queen who lived there. Each room represents a different style and its special purpose . It's a great experience to see them all in one place.
  • Totally worth it. Enormous place with a richness decoration. If you have 2/3h it's a good place to visit. Big free garden . Prepare yourself for a 3 euros for a photo permit.
  • It was free to walk around the palace grounds. It was very beautiful and serene. We had a nice relaxing walk through the gardens. Overall a great location in Berlin, with not too many tourists. Also the toilets were clean!
  • We skipped the audio guide because we were with a toddler but this was a mistake. The additional context would have greatly enhanced the experience. Otherwise it's an over the top palace highlighting the infamous divide from the very rich. We did however enjoy the Christmas market in front with great food and many stalls. And even rides for children.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
