Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin

Main entrance of the Charlottenburg Palace. Wait until you see it at night! Berlin. Dec 22, 2011.

It was a little painful to get to the Charlottenburg Palace after a visit to the Bundestag, but I managed and pretty proud of it. I then arrived at this only royal palace in Berlin. Perhaps it was due to my lack of knowledge regarding the German Kings and Queens, I didn’t find the Charlottenburg Palace as thrilling as the Versailles or Hofburg. Apart from the fact that most of it was damaged during the WW2, there weren’t any stories as intriguing as Marie-Antoinette or Empress Sissi. So, visiting the Charlottenburg was pretty much just like visiting a beautiful historic building: lots of paintings, antiques and furnitures. I did enjoy walking through all those elegant rooms though , and I must say they got some really dainty chandeliers.

Lots of Golden details around, it was richly decorated. Charlottenburg. Dec 22, 2011.

The salon which left me the strongest impression with its ceiling painting in pastel color range. I don't think I've seen such pastel-like ceiling painting, ever. Charlottenburg, Berlin. Dec 22, 2011.

I just loved these silver roses on the white walls. Charlottenburg, Berlin. Dec 22, 2011.
