  • This is an old palace about more than 500 years old, built with a Baroque architecture facade and looks stunningly beautiful. It is located in the Mette area of Berlin.

  • The palaces are beautiful and stunning, the architecture is amazing and also the breathtaking. I like the fact that some of the original architecture are still in existence and well preserved here. There are audio guides that take you through the palace in chronological order, which helps navigate the palace. Also I’ll suggest to go early so as to not rush and enjoy the journey.
  • Beautiful Historic architecture. A must visit place for people who love photography, and silence. The Park which is just in front (or behind) the Palace is so beautiful. There are a lot many seats to sit, and during Spring the Park is full of colourful flowers. The place is really nice, and worth visiting. Keep in mind, the Palace is quite far from the S Bahn, a bus needs to be taken to reach the Palace.
  • Brilliant audio tour around countless rooms, most of which are furnished. We spent many hours here so great value for money! Photography not allowed in many of the rooms in the main Palace but more relaxed in exhibitions and other areas. We bought tickets that included entry to 3 separate areas including old and new Palace and pavilion. Entry to the garden is free.
  • Beautiful palace easily accessible from the center of Berlin. Somewhat “typical” palace design so if you have been to others, you might be able to skip the interior tour and just enjoy the gardens, which are free. The audio guide is decent and certainly enhances the tour although it’s not as engaging as some. We spent about 2 hours here on a Saturday morning and it wasn’t very busy.
  • Be careful because you will need a couple of hours to see everything! The palace has really breathtaking elements however I visited for 2 hours and it was NOT enough. I had to make a fast paced walk to finish the old and the new wing but it was worth it.
