A fun fact: the palace was named after Sophie Charlotte, the first Queen consort in Prussia, and features a stunning collection of porcelain and silver in the New Wing.

Schloss Bellevue

Schloss Bellevue is more than the German President’s residence—it’s a historic site open for limited public tours, offering insights into the state functions and ceremonial aspects of the office. An interesting tidbit: the palace’s name means “Beautiful View,” and it indeed offers splendid views over the adjacent park and the River Spree.


Kronprinzenpalais, once a royal residence, now serves as a cultural venue. Its classical architecture and historical significance make it a fascinating stop for those interested in Germany’s imperial past.

Fun fact: the palace served as the residence for the first and only President of East Germany, Wilhelm Pieck, and later hosted state receptions during the GDR era.
