Charlottenburg Palace - Berlin

Yesterday Lulu and I visited the Charlottenburg Palace. It was the summer home of German and Prussian Kings and Queens for over 200 years. Today they do not have any royalty - so the palace has turned into a museum. 

I am not a big fan of Baroque and Rococo styles of art and architecture - but the place is beautiful and amazing. It is similar to the many royal homes we have seen in France and England. These folks really knew how to spend the peasants' money. 

It is very easy to get around Berlin - thanks to the buses - trams - trains - and subways. We have a monthly pass that covers all of those modes of transportation. Sometimes we use a cab - late at night or when we are in a rush to get some place - but that costs cash.
