Guided tour with castle manager Rudolf G. Scharmann, SPSG

Like no other palace and garden complex of the Brandenburg-Prussian Hohenzollerns, female members of the ruling family have left their mark in Charlottenburg over two centuries.


These included well-known personalities such as the namesake Sophie Charlotte and Queen Luise, who was laid to rest in the palace gardens. But other princesses also left their mark on Charlottenburg Palace.

Castle manager Rudolf G. Scharmann introduces the most important residents on three tours.

The first appointment is about Sophie Charlotte of Hanover (1668-1705). After her early death, King Frederick I had her summer residence Lietzenburg and the associated town renamed Charlottenburg. Worldly and highly talented, she particularly loved music, philosophy, gardening and East Asian porcelain. The earliest, purely French-designed Baroque garden in Germany was built around their Lietzenburg Musenhof.
