Charlottenburg Palace, known as ‘Schloss Charlottenburg‘ in German, is the largest and oldest existing palace in Berlin. It is dated back to the time of the Hohenzollern family and is located in the Charlottenburg district. This magnificent palace was constructed at the end of the 17th century and was expanded during the next century, uniquely decorated in baroque and rococo styles. The palace was heavily damaged, like most monuments in Berlin, during the Second World War, but has been reconstructed during the last decades and attracts countless visitors every year.
