Yes, i think so too.

With the Dresdner Frauen Kirche it was the same...

If someone wants to donate for the reconstruction:

Cornerstone of Berlin's City Palace laid this noon, by Germany's President Jo Gauck!

(1443 refers to the first construction of the Palace here)


http://www.faz.net/aktuell/feuilleto...-12219068.html


A time capsule was of course included that is enwrapped there. It consists of a daily newspaper of today, the original plans by Stella for the current Palace, the President's certificate for the reconstruction and the current set of German Euro coins.

Great update, thanks Ludi!


Two more historical images of Berlin's City Palace, credits to noisrevid for finding!



After WW2, it could easily have been saved by the GDR government, but was blown up due to political reasons:

Stop that sexist garbage please.
This thread is about Berliner city palace, not about your fear, that some woman can take your d*ck away from you in the age of equality (metaforycally),
and definetly NOT about advocating violence as something right.

Webcam from the TV-Tower you can find here.

There is also an short movie of the webcam-pics from one day, so you can see moving cement mixer cranes, etc. on the construction-field.

Yes, you are so right. It was an act of vandalism when the Communists blew up one of the most important buildings in Berlin. As badly damaged as it was, it would have been quite possible to restore given the will to do so. Now, as you say, Berlin will have it's historical centre once again, can't wait to see it going up!

I'm really glad this project proceeds!

Just an inquiry aside - what's the name of museum (?) in the background? I see only a sample of it's original facade was left, are there any intentions to reconstruct this one as well sometime in the future?

this is the Staatsratgebäude (former State Council of the German Democratic Republic, build 1962) The old portal ist actually an original part from the old Stadtschloss. It's the Portal IV, also known as Karl Liebknecht Portal. Liebknecht declared the German Socialist Republic from this balcony. So the GDR wanted to keep it.

1918
