Charlottenhof Palace is a small neoclassical summer residence located to the southwest of Sanssouci. After 1826 it was made the focus point of the park through the deliberate garden design. A manor house stood on the same location as the palace during the 18th century. In 1825, King Friedrich Wilhelm III acquired the house and the surrounding property, giving it to the crown prince and later King Friederich Wilhelm IV, who had it converted from manor to palace. Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the architect, who was also responsible for the interior design, and Peter Joseph Lenné, the creator of the neighboring park landscape, were united in a work that would become the highpoint of their creative activities, and one which may rightfully be called "a Prussian Arcadia."
In its simple language of forms, the palace was suffused with the spirit of antiquity and was influenced by Roman villas. The same can also be said of the modest, but graceful design of the interiors, whose furnishings were for the most part designed by Schinkel himself.
