TRAVEL BACK IN TIME

Where Berlin - - Where Now Adventures -

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).
