Some new but unfortunately a bit huge (sorry for that) images directly from the official Facebook page of the Wiederaufbau Berliner Schloss Gesellschaft/Society: https://www.facebook.com/wiederaufbau.berliner.schloss











View down Unter den Linden, which is still pretty much under construction too:

Out of the 3 baroque sides, what percentage of them are at this point completely covered in brick vs. bare grey concrete?

They said 80% a while ago. I think that excludes the dome too.

Some more recent impressions directly from the official Berliner Schloss page: http://berliner-schloss.de/blog/baus...om-05-10-2016/

Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal site

Is there any news on what they are now proposing for the Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal site now that they have shelved that modernistic monstrosity? I don't expect to see the memorial restored, but something more compatible with the Stadtschloss would be nice.

Speaking of that site, wouldn't the Neptune Fountain be nice there??

I asked this on the Marx-Engels-Forum, Marien Quarter and Molkenmarket thread but haven't heard anything yet. Does anyone know of any plans to clean/restore and move the Neptune Fountain?

I feel like I remember a long time ago hearing there were plans to move it. Does anyone have details? I feel like it's setting doesn't do it justice. It needs to be in a place of more prominence. It is stunning, just needs to be cleaned/repaired.

The issue of the Neptune Fountain was addressed not very long ago in this forum. At the time, I was mildly disappointed to read that there were no plans to move the fountain from its present site. Of course, the news of Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal above shows once again that plans can change with bewildering rapidity.

There are plans to move the Neptune Fountain to it's original place right in front of the South Facade (Portal II) as far as I know.

@Neptunbrunnen:
It's not decided yet. Oddly, the current social-democratic senator of construction in Berlin is a Swiss modernist pighead called Regula Lüscher, who does what she can to prevent any historical look-and-feel around Berlin's Stadtschloss, among others in the senate and the administration of the Mitte district.

But we keep fighting for the Neptune Fountain's return, promised.

So Regula Lüscher is against historical looks-and-feels and she is against Berlin highrises - two things I´m pro.

What is she pro? The sprawl of late 20th century european modernism?

What is a swiss social democrat doing heading up a Berlin office in authoritarian terms anyways. I´d kick her out!

Maybe she didn´t get her will in Switzerland, with growth-sick villages like Basel and Geneva building taller towers than Berlin´s tallest, so she tried to inflict her will upon someone else.

I hope they will fix the one modernist side of the Schloss and make that classical aswell.
Also, I hope they restore the interior and have a new Hohzenhollern Prince bwecome German Emperor.

But first, restore the Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal.

I wonder if AfD will make all this happen when they win?

1772: Such statements aren't really helpful in current socio-cultural conditions of Germany and Berlin. Please refrain from them, better delete them. Some lefty parliamentarian from Berlin might read it and go bonkers. Keep in mind, Berlin gets a red-red-green government coalition soon.

Off course you should laugh.
But why the need to make a "roadstand" if you find some opinion incomprehensible? Don´t be "smallish"!
A charm of the thread is the colourfulness of different people realistic or immature imagination.

Off course, the Hohenzollerns should never return to prominence. The cowardly and stricktly unnecessary abdication of their line created a vacuum without which Hitler may not have come to power.

I get what you mean, but you mustn't let the left keep the narrative.
Good people with good values will never win if they're afraid of bad people.
One must stand up for what one thinks and believes.

Also, I should say that AfD did well in Berlin, so not everyone is a green lefty.

We just shouldn't get too political here, that's what I mean. And not make connections like "hey, look we're rebuilding the Hohenzollern Palace, why not put the Hohenzollern royals back in charge while we're at it?"...

That's just bonkers and damages all kinds of reconstruction efforts in Germany and elsewhere, because it makes us look like revisionist douchebags.

Exactly! Reconstructions should not be connected to any political force, they should be a way of enriching country's cultural, architectural and artistical value.

Well said, guys, and now let's marvel at some more recent impressions of the construction by courtesy of Spreetunnel of the Stadtbild Deutschland Forum:

What an imposing view this will be when everything is finished.
