The original, small, palace on this site was built by the future Queen of Prussia, Sophia Charlotte, in 1695 - 1699. After her death in 1705, the area was named Charlottenburg. King Frederick I of Prussia (1705 - 1713) began using the palace for official events and meeting of foreign monarchs. During his reign the palace was significantly expanded, a large orangery appeared.

In 1806, Napoleon Bonaparte slept in the palace. During World War II, the palace was closed and the interior was hidden in mines. After the bombings, it was damaged by 60%, mostly only the walls remained. The restoration of the palace is still going on, although visually it is not noticeable. Nowadays it serves as a museum.
