It’s been a while since I posted a mystery photo challenge on my blog. So when I came across this photo, I decided to have a little fun with it.
Do you know the name and location of the place shown here?
UPDATE JANUARY 23, 2012
Congratulations to Laurence Norah and Kevin Dincher who correctly identified the location of this mystery photo challenge as being Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin, Germany.

Clue #1: The original section of this building was constructed in the late 17th century, with considerable expansion taking place over the next 100 years.
Clue #2: The building was reconstructed after being largely destroyed during World War II. The building and grounds are a major tourist attraction.
Clue #3: In recent years, a very popular Christmas Market has been set in front of this place.
There will be additional clues today and tomorrow on Facebook and Twitter so check there, too.

Charlottenburg Palace, Berlin
Looks like the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, England.
Looks like Europe but I’ll check the clues.
It looks like the Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. If it is, then you had the same weather visiting it as I did 😉
It looks like a castle in Germany, but unfortunately I don’t which one, or where!
My guess would be the National Museum on Wenceslas Square in Prague, but that’s supposed to be at least a hundred years younger, so I’m probably mistaken;)
I also agree it should be Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin ~ The blue/greenish roof on the tower thing really stands out XD
Darn it! I should have known that 🙂
