Laid out by Peter Lenné for Friedrich Wilhelm IV, Park Charlottenhof segues imperceptibly from Park Sanssouci but gets a lot fewer visitors. Buildings here reflect the king's passion for Italy. The small neoclassical Schloss Charlottenhof , for instance, was modelled after a Roman villa and features a Doric portico and bronze fountain. It was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel who, aided by his student Ludwig Persius, also dreamed up the nearby Römische Bäder , a picturesque ensemble of an Italian country villa. A same-day combination ticket is €5 (concession €4).
