This is a very good initiative from the German people to rebuild their glorious past....

I wish we would rebuild the Tuileries Palace in France so bad...

Looking great! I love the 18 cranes in the background too, hard to believe that 25 years after the fall of the wall, Berlin is still one big construction project.

edit: I meant 25 years, not 15 years

Berlin was always (in)famous for being one large construction site. Already before the World Wars.
Karl Scheffler said in 1913: "Berlin, dazu verdammt immerfort zu werden und niemals zu sein."
Attempt of a translation: Berlin, damned forever in the process of being and never to be. No clue how to properly translate that complicated sentence into English.

I've also read about Berlin being called "the most rebuilt city in history".

Construction Methods?

Here in America where I live, they only pour concrete if the temperature is above freezing and rising. I wonder if it is any different there in Germany since it does seem that construction is proceeding on this site even though the weather must be below freezing at times?

Its no problem in Germany - Berlin is actually relatively warm compared to a lot of places.

Here in Canada, its 6 months below freezing, often getting below -30 and construction rarely stops. Im no expert, but generally speaking (all in Celsius):

0 to -10 (Regular pouring)
-10 to -15 (wrap concrete with tarps and put in heaters under tarps)
-15 to -25 (special concrete used - i believe they put lime and other material in it)
-25 and colder (usually this halts concrete work as the mix will freeze before it gets into place

Crews usually dont look happy working in anything below -25.

That's one fine crane city. Love the tomb being opened, after what looks like 100 years ?.

A great addition to Berlin.

Question for Ludi

Are those first couple of photos that you recently posted from the base of the old Kaiser Wilhelm Denkmal or are they something else?
