Charlottenburg Palace is the largest palace in Berlin, Germany, and the only surviving royal residence in the city. The palace was built at the end of the 17th century and was greatly expanded during the 18th century.
The large formal garden surrounded by woodland was added behind the palace, including a belvedere, a mausoleum, a theatre and a pavilion. During the Second World War, the palace was badly damaged but has since been reconstructed.
The garden was designed in 1697 by Simeon Godeau, the design consisted of geometric patterns, with avenues and moats, which separated the garden from its natural surroundings.
