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".
The dinner and concert and Palace tour were great, I will recommend this.
An evening at Charlottenburg was great. Very good food, very organized, great music. We loved it.
Fabulous evening. Palace is magnificent to tour; dinner was superb; concert was excellent, with chamber orchastra and opera singers singing with emotion and expression. Highly recommended.
Excellent night out. Staff and performers were all in costume. The food was 5 star and the music was both technically and artistically first rate. The staff were very friendly, personable and helpful. Ian and Gayle, Canberra, Australia
If you like good food and enjoy classical concerts, this event is for you. Wonderful setting, the whole evening flowed smoohtly and the performers were superb. The Schloss tour is very worthwhile too. My only grumble would be that the seating for the concert is not allocated and the room could have done with some airconditioning.
Fabulous. Palace tour was fascinating and dinner presentation beautiful. Music was the highlight. True professional musicians. The soloists on violin, flute, and male and female opera singers were fabulous. We wanted to do the boat tour as well, so had to purchase that separately once we arrived since there was no option to do both the palace and boat tours in one package. Boat tour was very informative as well.
A great experience. Dinner was elegant and the musical concert was entertaining. The self guided tour of the palace was fun and interesting. This is a really well put together package.
Was a very nice experience to dine in this beautiful decorated hall with a warm welcome from (as we say) the 'pedel'. The concert was a very nice experience. All by all very much worthwhile going to Charlotteburg.

Excellent evening. Tour of Palace is worth doing and you will need at least 1 hour to do it. Meal in Orangery was delicious, and excellent atmosphere for meal and concert. Only negative - very hard to find the Palace and also the office to exchange the vouchers. Better signing for Palace needs to be put in the streets and perhaps directions from the station .
Perfect! Nice castle, excellent dinner, friendly staff, impressive concert. Marvellous

A night that was well worth it considering the distance we travelled from our hotelon the night. The food was excellent and the atmosphere created by the staff really made it a 'Grand' night.
This was a very good tour and worth the money. The castle is beautiful, the food was very good, the dining service excellent. The concert was very entertaining.
When we checked in the agents at the castle seemd confused by our vouchers and then finally let us go in. The problem with Viator is that they do not have any of their agents working in the area. No one know who you are. You should try to rectify that little problem. This was not the only tour we took that when they saw the voucher they were confused and did not know what to do with it.
Palace tour was breathtaking, dinner was delicious and of high quality, the concert was relaxing. A great afternoon and night out at very reasonable price. Thank you.
Our visit to the charlottenburg palace was an experience we very much enjoyed, it was a surprise for my husbands birthday and felt that although it wasnt cheap it was well worth it.
Firstly though I would suggest that you make the most of your palace tour by arriving early so that you have at least 2 hours to do the self guided tour easily before arriving at the Orangery for your meal.
We felt the waiting time for your meal was a little to long as the staff were concentrating on selling drinks. (I asked for a glass of tap water)before before ordering a drink and having my meal and was told they did not have any tap water and I would have to buy a bottle of water, yet later in the evening I seen a jug of water on the bar and on asking found this was drinking water and was offered a glass. I wasnt very happy about this as they told me a deliberate lie so I would buy water.
My husband and I feel that we paid a reasonable price for a lovely meal and a wonderful concert afterwards and would recommend anyone to go, just make sure you get tap water if thats what you want.

The only real thing I would criticise is that there wasnt any real atmosphere in the dining area, there should have been some pleasant music playing.
It was a remarkable evening! I strongly recommend this for a romantic evening, good foood and excellent services. My rating is 5 star Antoniu
Outstnding. The night was magical. It was our last evening in Berlin and was a night not to forget. Missed the tour of the palace because I was a little misunderstood about the timing. But I would recommend this to anyone.
A great atmosphere was created by the staff who were dressed in period costumes. They greeted us and took us to our dinner table where we received a quality meal with drinks. The concert that followed was of a professional standard and most enjoyable.
It was a delight afternoon and evening at the Charlottenburg Palace. We enjoyed the palace tour, the dinner similar to what the king would have eaten and the evening concert. The evening setting was a reminder of how things may have been in days of long ago.
We rank this evening among the highlights of our vacation. The music was wonderful, the staff professional, food good. Only problem was finding the Orangery ticket office. Signage & directions were poor.
A great experience, good food, excellent music and superb ambiance one of the highlights of our visit to Berlin.
