Charlottenburg Palace is the largest and most important residence of the Hohenzollern monarchs still standing in Berlin. The magnificent palace complex is surrounded by a unique baroque garden that opens out onto a landscape park decorated with edifices in a variety of architectural styles. The palace and gardens were originally built as a summer residence for Prussian Queen Sophie Charlotte and later expanded by subsequent rulers. The oldest part dates from 1695-1713, while King Frederick the Great built the new wing of the palace in 1740-42. 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. The ensemble stands as an artistically and historically impressive monument to the history of the royal court in Berlin from the Baroque to the end of World War I.
