Today the palace and its grounds are very popular with tourists. Visitors can tour the Old Palace, the New Wing, the Mausoleum, the Belvedere and the Neue Pavilion. Throughout the palace drawings, paintings, sculptures, furniture and porcelain as well as the crown jewels are on display.

Built for Sophie Charlotte, the first Queen consort of Prussia, this summer palace was completed in 1699. If you like high rococo, you won't be disappointed.

Unfortunately I still haven't made it inside the palace in all of my trips to Berlin but it is one of the easiest of the palaces around Berlin to visit. Go in December for the Christmas Market in front of the palace

I have not yet been inside the palace but the grounds around it are amazing for walking and jogging. It's large enough that it takes a while to cover every path but small enough that you don't get lost.
A wonderful green space in the middle of the city!

Originally a palace devoted to Queen Sophie Charlotte, the wife of Friedrich III, it is now a palatial museum dedicated to the history and architecture of Berlin. The grounds and gardens are lovely, and include smaller edifices as well as an orangerie. I would highly recommend taking a tour of the palace, where you can see the diversity of themed rooms, as well as where Charlotte and Friedrich lived.

Summer palace not as impressive as the one in Vienna but worth visiting due to nice Charlottestrasse street from the subway to the palace (you can also have a coffe on the bars on the way).

Beautiful palace with lovely grounds to explore for free. There are Christmas markets next to it in the run up to Christmas

Great opulence, but more importantly there is a fantastic Christmas market with delicious food and beautiful crafts right outside the palace.

Palazzo ricostruito dagli Alleati dopo il bombardamento a loro opera dopo la 2gm che non ha quasi nulla di originale: la sua collezione di porcellane e oggetti orientali é vasta, bella ma non originale. Ha anche un giardino e un negozio! Dentro comunque é molto bello e lussuoso
