Or just replace it in 10 or 20 years and repair the damage that is done at the moment.

This picture makes it clear just how badly the palace needed to be restored to this area. It's looking magnificent.

Yes it is, but you have to donate first and then you can ask the foundation for a tour.

The reconstruction still planed, but until now seems like there is no investor for this project, but I am sure they will find someone soon.

And let Putin's communist party pay for the rebuild. After all, it was the damn Commies who destroyed a war damaged building that could have easily been repaired and rebuilt to its pre war grandeur at a fraction of the cost of today.

I'm not sure if this post is the best to show the follow video, but in some frames appears the palace just after WWII...

[/QUOTE]

Although in my city (Valencia, Spain) we suffer the destruction of our own royal palace during the napoleonic invasion, i can't imagine the kind of destruction that video shows.

I've watched some color videos of Berlin in 30's, one being from the 1936 Olympic Games time, but this is the clearest one I saw. Nice image, really cool to see back then and now. I know many other buildings could have been reconstructed, but considering the destruction during and on post war time, it's amazing to see how is the city today. And is getting prettier as more the time pass. One day I´m sure I will visit this place.

Berlin is very interesting, a good mix between new and old. The palace was that one missing piece in that area.

Oh boy, the memorial in front of the city palace, it really was in a very good shape! Other buildings on Unter den Linden could have been saved as well. I bet in Mitte overwall, if we have more videos. Anyway, very cool video.

It appears that the first decorative limestone ornamentation (the circular panels under the first level windows) have been placed on the West facade.

Putin himself has personally stolen enough money to recreate any building the commies tore down.

If I may, here too you can see the castle during an East German parade in 1950 (around 2:50, first youtube video). Posters of Stalin, Walter Ulbrich and other figures can be seen as well ... :

Interesting to see the west part of Unter den Linden and the overall panorama which will be recovered soon.

Fascinating video. It certainly brings to life Berlin in the aftermath of the war, in a way that no grainy black & white photo ever can.

This Scotsman is Museum King of Germany

Neil MacGregor is director of the Humboldt Forum in the Berlin City Palace . But he ceases Museum in London as head of British . Now the Scot visited for the first time his new job .



How can a city know their new foundation director ? Of course, not really , finally, Neil MacGregor , bulkheads and expert on Germany , not every single Berlin shake hands and ask him for his sympathy . The very word already - " Director " , it then calls , printed in any newspaper comment columns to stand where it makes one feel guilty because you could wish for , they could all remember once , the directors . The museum director and opera directors , the theater director and the division directors in Berlin and elsewhere .

What's amazing about the video posted above is how in only two months, the city streets were cleared and traffic seemed to be moving in good order.
