  • 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.
