The Salon Sophie Charlotte at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities is an event that is open to all interested members of the public. It takes place annually, in the venerable halls of the academy and focusses on a new topic each year.

The salon is named after Sophie Charlotte Queen in Prussia (1668-1705), who campaigned for the founding of the first academic academy in Berlin and opened her summer residence (now Schloss Charlottenburg) for salons, lectures, discussions and musical events.

Since 2014 Die Junge Akademie has been actively contributing to the salon.
