Yeah right, more castles!

My mom was in town and wanted to visit Charlottenburg Castle. Know what? We found the best argument against building the Stadtschloss. Charlottenburg Castle has been renovated recently so we expected noble interior, original paintings. We expected to catch a glimpse on royal life as it used to be. So we went for the Audio-Guide and started our walk through what used to be splendid royal appartments. The Audioguy defenitely needed some sleep when he recorded the guide, nearly fell asleep while listening. Worse, not one room in the castle fits with the next one, all the interior you see is commented as “not original”, because the original was burned/destroyed/stolen, i.e. the famous “Bernstein Zimmer” was originally set up in Schloss Charlottenburg before it got lost somewhere between Berlin and Sibiria. In short: The presentation does lack content. How do they think will they fill that newly built castle in Mitte when it is done? Can’t believe this.
