Charlottenburg Park
Charlottenburg Park traces its origin to a small summer residence built on site for Sophie Charlotte, wife of the Elector Fredrick III. The Prussian kings lived here until the late 19th century, expanding and altering the palace and its grounds several times. Reconstruction began in 1948 in the wake of the grave damage suffered during the war. Today, Charlottenburg is the largest remaining Hohenzollern residential palace in Berlin. Let yourself be inspired and enchanted by the art, kitsch and the true and slightly tongue-in-cheek stories of the Hohenzollern House.

Peacock Island
The park on Peacock Island originated as an extension to the New Garden, Fredrick William II had a small wooden palace built on the island. In keeping with the spirit of the time, it was designed as a small place where man could live in harmony with nature. Lenné landscaped the island in the 19th century. Even today the 70 living peacocks provide a particular pleasure both great and small.
