Charlottenburg Palace is the largest and most important residence of Berlin’s former royal family, variously titled the Electors of Brandenburg electors, the Kings of Prussia, and the Kaisers of Germany. You can now trace the changing tastes of the palace’s many residents over the centuries and the changing requirements of both its ceremonial and private use from the Baroque to the early 20th century. The entire ensemble is characterised by sumptuously appointed rooms and halls, impressive suites of rooms, and high-quality collections containing several outstanding masterpieces, including one of the largest collections of eighteenth-century French painting outside of France. After heavy damage in World War II, the palace was largely restored and furnished appropriately, making the former royal summer residence one of the main attractions in the German capital. A single ticket grants admission to all of the museums on the palace grounds; old Palace and special exhibitions excluced
