Great Orangery Charlottenburg Palace
Relive the heyday of the Hohenzollern dynasty as you travel back to the Baroque era. Charlottenburg Palace was Prussia’s first cultural center, reaching its zenith under Queen Sophie Charlotte. At this time, concerts and operas composed by famous musicians were the highlights of courtly festivities.
Your evening begins with a magnificent three-course candlelit dinner in the enchanting setting of the Great Orangery. After the sumptuous meal, relax and listen to music from the 17th and 18th centuries including works by Bach, Handel, Mozart and Vivaldi. To make the atmosphere even more authentic, the musicians and soloists are all dressed in period costumes.
Tickets for Great Orangery dinners and concerts regularly sell out well in advance. Book online and make sure of your seat to enjoy this stunning Berlin experience.

Charlottenburg Palace is the largest palace in Berlin.The magnificent building is surrounded by glorious gardens showcasing various architectural styles.The building was in its heyday in the 18th century under the Prussian King Frederick the Great who was an enthusiastic patron of the arts.

Audiences are swept away on a musical journey back into the 18th century and the concerts have become extremely popular.

Arriving at the large Palace in dark early evening it was very clear where the Candlelit Dinner and Concert event was being held as the East and West Great Orangeries were lit in...B Hartley, United Kingdom, 13/Jan/2018
The dinner was delicious, and we enjoyed the concert- even if it meant a long retk through the rain. The Charlottenberg Palace was the perfect venue....John Townes, Australia, 10/Oct/2017
It was a wonderful evening. A bit of a convoluted way to get your tickets though. Perhaps this part could be done a different way. The meal was delicious, drinks reasonable...Narelle L Bentley, Australia, 08/Jan/2015
Arriving at the large Palace in dark early evening it was very clear where the Candlelit Dinner and Concert event was being held as the East and West Great Orangeries were lit in a reddish orange array of floodlights and the many large windows of the West Wing had hundreds of small real candles flickering. On entering greeted by a Master of Ceremonies wearing Baroque era costume and wig.
Individually Guests were taken through a closed red velvet curtain to their assigned table. MC introduced each course in German and English, food and catering by Mariott was SUPERB. I would estimate the sold out Dining and Concert had between 250 to 300 Guests.
The Concert in 2 parts was hosted by the MC first part the Orchestra and Singers were in full Baroque period costumes with music from the era (Mozart etc) and later in full tails black evening attire playing music from later period including Strauss, Vilvaldi and also Ravel's Balero. Excellent music and songs VIP Guest seating was in front rows and served Champagne in intermission. A personal farewell by MC on departing the venue. The Palace a perfect setting for a Candlelit Dinner and Baroque Concert especially on New Years day evening 2018 in Berlin.
This summer, make a splash with the whole family!
