Schloss Charlottenburg's landscape gardens are a true feast for the eye. Now a popular destination for a relaxing Sunday afternoon stroll, the royal gardens were first designed in the 17th century and gradually added to over the ensuing years. Some parts of the garden display the original French style, while much of the rest of the park was relandscaped as an English garden in the early 19th century. Dotted with numerous small buildings and sculptures, the mausoleum (containing the tombs of Queen Luise and Friedrich Wilhelm III), the pond and the Belvedere tea house are particularly noteworthy. After exploring the gardens, visitors could have a coffee in the Orangerie or head off by boat to the other great royal palaces in Potsdam.
