Schloss Charlottenburg - Altes Schloss information
Fronted by Andreas Schlüter’s equestrian statue of the Great Elector (1699), the baroque living quarters of Friedrich I and Sophie-Charlotte are an extravaganza in stucco, brocade and overall opulence. Highlights include the Oak Gallery , a wood-panelled festival hall draped in family portraits; the charming Oval Hall overlooking the park; Friedrich I’s bedchamber, with the first-ever bathroom in a baroque palace; the fabulous Porcelain Chamber , smothered in Chinese and Japanese blue ware; and the Eosander Chapel , with its trompe l’oeil arches.
Closed for renovation until 2017.
