Germany: palaces in Berlin

On 8th August arrived the four cards I sent to myself when I recently visited Berlin.

One of the cards shows different palaces in Berlin. The Bellevue Palace is the official seat of the President of Germany. The Charlottenburg Palace is the largest castle in Berlin and the only royal residence dating back to the time of the Hohenzollern family. The Friedrichsfelde Palace is located in the Tierpark Berlin. The Köpenick Palace is located in Köpenick. The Glienicke Palace and the Pfaueninsel are since 1990 part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin". Schönhausen Palace is a Baroque palace in Niederschönhausen. The Schinkel-Pavillon was built between 1824 and 1825 by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. The Grunewald Palace is the oldest palace of Berlin.
