Charlottenburg Angel II

Charlottenburg Palace, built by King Friedrich I in 1699 as a summer palace for his wife Sophie Charlotte, Schloss Charlottenburg is not only the oldest, but also the largest Prussian palace in Berlin.

Surrounded by a baroque-style park (Schlossgarten), the palace is famous for its ornate furnishings and its collection of 18th century French paintings, the largest of its kind outside of France.

In the 18th century, the kings of Prussia have resided here and the palace has been greatly expanded. During the Second World War, Schloss Charlottenburg has been badly damaged, but was painstakingly reconstructed to its former splendor in the 1950’s.
