In the extensive grounds of the garden of Schloss Charlottenburg, three buildings invite visitors: the Belvedere, the Mausoleum, and the Neuer Pavillon. The Belvedere was erected in 1788–89 based on plans by Carl Gotthard Langhans. As its function and name, "schöne Aussicht," already reveal, the tower-like building once provided a broad panorama over the city. The Mausoleum, the burial site of Queen Luise of Prussia, draws the most visitors until today. Friedrich Wilhelm III chose the end of a dark avenue of fir trees as the location to lay his deceased young wife to rest. The Neuer Pavillon, an Italianate villa, is located close to the Spree. Karl Friedrich Schinkel designed this masterpiece of neoclassical architecture as a private refuge for Friedrich Wilhelm III.
