While that might be the case when it comes down to the looks, each of these castles has its own story to tell, so does Charlotenburg. It is not the must see attraction, but if you have enough available time to visit it or you're just into the castles, definitely do it. Enjoy the history, the beautiful view and the stroll down the park :).
The complex was enlarged several times, adding a domed tower crowned with a statue of the goddess of happiness Fortuna, several wings, the Orangeries, the annex, and the Belvedere Teahouse, now a porcelain museum. Also worth noting is the mausoleum of Queen Louise, and the Schinkel pavilion, built as a summerhouse for King Friedrich Wilhelm II.
