Panorama Magnet Charlottenburg Palace

? Tax based on United Kingdom.

The Charlottenburg Palace is the largest and most important castle complex of the former Brandenburg electors, Prussian kings and German emperors in Berlin. It was one of the favorite locations of Hohenzollern family, who changed the individual bedchambers and garden to fit their tastes within the course of 200 years and leading up to the magnificent castle and park that it is today.

Prussian monarch Frederick I (he was Frederick III of the house of Hohenzollern) commissioned the palace in 1699 as a summer palace for him and his wife, the first Queen Consort, Sophie Charlotte. This regal estate, the largest palace in Berlin, is framed by a baroque-style garden and impressive architecture such as a mausoleum, a belvedere, a pavilion, and a theatre.

The palace was severely devastated during World War II and the renovations to restore the castle to its former glory took 20 years. The palace itself has been expanded a number of times since it's original completion in 1699. Its namesake, Queen Sophie Charlotte, lived in the palace until her death from pneumonia in 1705 at the young age of 36.

Currently, Charlottenburg Palace and its extensive gardens is one of the famous sightseeing attractions and event venues in Berlin being visited by thousands of tourists and locals each year. It was temporarily used as the official residence of Germany's President from 2004 - 2006 due the renovations being done on Bellevue Palace - the original official residence of Germany's President. The castle will be commemorated on the 2€ coin in Germany in 2018.
