It does indeed. Just as the ads on the HumboldtBox. I think we should be grateful for any kind of contribution to the reconstruction of the Palace.

Will the garden area in the Scholssplatz on the south side of the palace be reconstructed in the form put in place by Empress Augusta?

BERLIN | City Palace Reconstruction (Stadtschloss) - "Humboldt-Forum" | U/C

I don't think so. This might be the best you can hope for. No comment.

They might be aiming for the original aspect

Thank you so much, Ludi, for posting these pics, especially those of the carved stone being placed above the arch of the Eosander Portal. The webcams don't show such fine detail. I'd say this portal promises to be spectacular when finished.

It definitely will! When finished it will be one of Europe's largest and most impressive triumphal arches again. For comparison:

Marble Arch (London): 12m

Arc du Triomphe du Carrousel (Paris): 19m

Arch of Constantine (Rome): 21m

Eosander Portal: 30m

Arc du Triomphe (Paris): 50m

Corner Tower

I'm not sure if anyone's discussed this yet, but are the west facade, the northwest corner, and the southeast corner tower taking so long because they require different window pediments? I'm assuming the custom pieces are behind on chiseling time and haven't been completed yet, hence the holdup on the portals as well?

Also, don't worry, I'm done ranting about the lack of reconstructed interiors and things they "forgot" to reconstruct, I got over it eventually

Color Me Curious

One of the rooms in the original palace had a series of circular decorations on the wall that looks like large porcelain plates. Regrettably, I am not sure of the name of the room. I was curious if that was what they were. That was the only time that I have ever seen anything like that in the way of interior decoration.

Don't know if it's true, but I read somewhere that the Japanese Palace in Dresden was to be covered in porcelain, but the works were never finished due to lack of funds and war. It would be interesting to see porcelain in something like that.

As a matter of fact: Berlin has a whole street of buildings clad in Porcelain!!!

It`s called Frankfurter Allee and was a show of for East-Berlin. But the road was never completed for a lack of recourses.









here one can see the tiles:




build between 1953 to 1956

Joe, the room is the Rittersaal (Knights' Hall), and the plates on the wall are a
"buffet" arrangement; they were made of gilded silver.

That's a colorized picture, but they look to have gotten the colors right.

EDIT: Actually, looks like it survived the war:

EDIT 2: Also, I found something similar, in Chatsworth House's Great Chamber in the Baroque Apartments, incase you'd like to check it out:

Rittersaal Decoration

I appreciate your help in identifying the decorative elements in the former "Rittersaal" of the Stadtschloss. It's too bad that they couldn't have included at least one of the original rooms in the current restoration.

By the way, I believe that Frankfurter Allee is actually made of what is more commonly called "terra cotta" rather than "porcelain." Of course, this may just be a difference in building terms from country to country.

My best, Joe

If you want to use thumbnails, you need to link the smaller preview picture with a larger full-resolution picture.

I notice there is no work being done on the north portals. Is there any plan to remove City Palace Portal IV from its location on the former state council building to the palace? Is this a genuine remnant from the old palace?

Work on the north portals will begin at a later point because it is much easier to transport construction equipment and material through the portals into the buildings and courtyards without them being under construction.

The portal will remain part of the Staatratsgebäude since it is a protected monument by now. About 1/5 of the portal is original. Mostly the statues and ornamentation.
