TRAVEL BACK IN TIME
Forget modern Berlin, with its contemporary architecture and revisited menus, and travel back to the 1700s with a Baroque evening in the orangery of the Schloß Charlottenburg. The summer retreat built by King Friedrich I of Prussia for his wife Sophie Charlotte is the best place to take in the atmosphere and music of that era. After an elegant, all-German dinner, members of the Berlin Palace Orchestra enter the scene in historic costumes to play masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Händel, and Boccherini, and even some pieces by the royal couple, Queen Sophie Charlotte and King Frederick I, who weren’t only music lovers, but also composers. Every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday (except Sat 9 and Sat 15 Aug).
