Wie Viele Schlösser hat Berlin? (How Many Palaces are There in Berlin?)

Schloss Bellevue

How many palaces are there in Berlin? Not an easy question. Just calling something a palace doesn't necessarily make it so. For example, Schlossstraße (Palace Street) and Schlossparktheater (Palace Park Theater) aren't palaces.  According to art history expert, Guido Hinterkeuser, a palace is or was the residence of nobility. According to this criteria, there are 12 palaces in Berlin.
