Taking advantage of a good weather and a convenient 70’s inspired dress, we spent a day in the parc of schloss Charlottenburg to pay a visit and make a few photos. The sun was hopefully there, but somewhat too strong without the use of a reflector and little help of a flash.
About the location, and according to wikipedia :
The garden was designed in 1697 in baroque style by Simeon Godeau who had been influenced by André Le Nôtre, designer of the gardens at Versailles. Godeau’s design consisted of geometric patterns, with avenues and moats, which separated the garden from its natural surroundings. Beyond the formal gardens was the Carp Pond. Towards the end of the 18th century, a less formal, more natural-looking garden design became fashionable. In 1787 the Royal Gardener Georg Steiner redesigned the garden in the English landscape style for Friedrich Wilhelm II, the work being directed by Peter Joseph Lenné. After the Second World War, the centre of the garden was restored to its previous baroque style.
