The Schloss Bellevue (Bellevue Palace) is a pearly-white magnificent building in neoclassical style. It contrasts wonderfully with the green of the extensive palace garden and the surrounding Großer Tiergarten.
Since 1994, the Schloss Bellevue has been the official residence of the Federal President. The in World War II badly damaged building was reconstructed in the 1950s. Nowadays, there are 15 representative rooms in the Schloss Bellevue, where the Federal President receives his guests.
In the beautifully designed Entrance Hall, he welcomes his guests who then sign the visitors’ book. And in his classy Office, the Federal President receives guests from home and abroad for talks.
On the second floor impresses the elliptical room in classical style with its two fireplaces. The former ballroom is now used for receptions and smaller dinners.
However, the Schloss Bellevue also features a beautifully representative park with wide lawns, landscaped paths, kidney-shaped ponds and modern elements.
Here in the palace garden, approximately 380 soldiers of the branches of the military army, navy and air force and the military band prepare an honourable reception for the guests of the Federal President.
The Schloss Bellevue is open to visitors at the open day and at various events such as honours for example. However, even if you cannot go inside the palace, because you are in Berlin at one of the other days, it is nevertheless worthwhile to have a look at the palace. In the immediate vicinity are also the monumental Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate) and the impressive Siegessäule (Victory Column). Either way, it is worth to start from the hotel LINDEMANN’S to explore Berlin.
We wish you a lot of fun!
