'An Evening at Charlottenburg Palace' Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert by the Berlin Residence Orchestra
We enjoyed the evening immensely. With the help of audio handsets we learnt a lot about the palace, where we spent about 2 hours. Dinner was very well organisez. It was a very relaxing time for us after sightseeing all day.
For dinner we had:
- Spinach and salmon pate on a bed of tender sugar snaps peas, served with an orange vinegrette
- Brest of corn-fed chicken with herb and honey crust, served with root vegetables and asparagus tips, risolee potatoes and a truffle veloute
- Peach parfait layered with a traditional German cake, served with spiced chocolate sauce and candied rose petals
Having experience of German food we were worried that the portions will be huge, but they were just right. Wine bought extra was of very good quality. Evening concert was a real treat. Th emusicians and the opera singers were fantastic. I highly recommend this evening to anyone on a tour of Berlin.
Unfortunately, as the master of ceremony said (in German, English and French) "The King couldn't be with us".
