West of Berlin's city centre in the Charlottenburg district lies the impressive Schloss Charlottenburg, which was built in the late 17th - and greatly expanded in the 18th century. Named after Sophie Charlotte, Queen of Frederick I, it was built as the couple's summer residence. A lavish Baroque garden was laid out immediately behind the palace, which was restored after destruction during World War II. It was reconstructed in the mid-1900s.
