Charlottenburg Palace is one of the landmarks of Berlin. The largest and most beautiful royal palace still standing in the capital, Charlottenburg was erected as the summer residence of Sophie Charlotte, the first queen of Prussia, who was also the namesake for the palace and the surrounding district. Subsequent generations of the royal family expanded and remodelled the palace according to the taste of their time. As a result, the palace contains interior decoration reflecting several architectural styles: the old palace, with its magnificent baroque state rooms and the famous porcelain cabinet, and the new wing built by Frederick the Great in 1742. The famous palace gardens contain the mausoleum of Queen Louise, the Belvedere with its world-renowned collection of KPM porcelain and the new pavilion.

Due to construction work as part of the overall restoration plan, the new wing at Charlottenburg Palace is expected to remain closed until the end of July 2014.
