The magnificent Charlottenburg Palace is one of the most famous sites in Berlin, a former summer residence for the House of Hohenzollern, a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings and emperors. Today, the palace and grounds are a major visitor’s attraction.
This evening of classical music and fine dining at the palace begins with a 3-course, candlelight dinner in the magnificent Orangery, a sophisticated ballroom that combines the luxury of centuries past with all the amenities of modern life — perfect for receptions and dinners. Enjoy a seasonal selection of exquisite dishes with a vegetarian option, if desired. One dinner example would be potato-ginger soup with lemon oil and thinly sliced rosemary ham; filet of Brandenburg pork in puff pastry served in a ragout of apples, savoy cabbage and mushrooms with a peppered cherry sauce; and a chocolate tart a la Sophie Charlotte with gold-sprinkled crème and spiced pears.
After dinner, proceed to the auditorium for a concert with the Berlin Residence Orchestra. Choose from four ticket categories: VIP, A, B and C — referring to the front-to-back seating, respectively, in the concert venue. VIP guests enjoy preferred seating for the concert with a glass of champagne during intermission. The orchestra is comprised of renowned musicians from Berlin, with a particular understanding and love for music of the late baroque and classical era. The program includes selections by famous composers like Bach, Handel, Mozart and more.
