Unforgettable impressions of a very special evening !Reviewed by: Karin F, April 2013
How many times in our lives we will have the opportunity to have dinner in the Orangerie of a Palace like Charlottenburg ? This was charming to be there, plus the dinner was excellent: "delicatesse". Than we moved to the other room where the concert took place. We think that the "ambiance" was more important than what we ate or heard... hardly recommend !Reviewed by: Herbie, April 2013
The dinner, service, concert and setting were super but there is a fundamental flaw in the arrangements. The ticket includes entrance to the palace which is a little way out of the city centre. The ticket office for this event is not in the main palace, it's about a 5 minute walk away. So having got taxis to the palace, walked to find the ticket office, walked back to the palace for the tour, we had 40 minutes to see the house before it closed at 5pm. We felt rushed and somewhat intimidated by some of the palace attendants (looking at their watches etc) and were effectively unable to do it justice. Arguably our fault for going late in the day. However, once closed, we walked back to the Orangery for the evening's entertainment that started at 6pm. The reception room is not geared up for people to wait around for an hour: not enough seats, no bar, so we, a group of 16, had to stand around waiting for an hour to go through for the evening's entertainment. There's nowhere else nearby to go and get a coffee while we waited. Luckily what followed was worth it but the whole flow was spoilt by this hiatus. So, my advice is definitely worth doing if you're game for some culture and refinement BUT do the palace separately or be prepared for waiting around.Reviewed by: Mike N, March 2013
An interesting night out, I feel that it was overpriced as the meal was very average.Reviewed by: Farida S, March 2013
