Allowing people to visit during construction is a great idea. I saw this happen in Dresden years ago when they were trying to drum up support for the reconstructions around the Frauenkirche. I was shocked to see people being allowed to walk through the area as the cellars were being excavated. This is a great way to get and keep people excited about the project. I have never seen it in the U.S. We have too much concern about liability. (We have more lawyers in the U.S. than the whole world combined).

Also thanks to Ludi for the great updates (you too Tiaren)

The excitement and interest that the 'open door' event generated underscores the point made so often that people want this type of historic reconstruction. The project will be noted on every itinerary and heavily photographed and visually enjoyed. Hard to imagine the same pre-finish event garnering the same enthusiasm for structures such as the Sony center at Potsdammer Platz and Conciliation Chapel....and others.

Thank you for the pics.

What a project, no words!
Can't wait to come, see and feel!

Berlin is so hip and cool and this edifice will add a new old flavor.

Stucco or Brick?

Is the plan still to go back and stucco over the brick on the exterior walls of the palace once the brick work is complete or do they plan to leave the brick exposed as it is now?

Looks great. Looks totally historically accurate with the gaps filled in

I'm relieved that they they're filling in the gaps on the modernist section too.

Progress on the Main Arch

From the web cameras it looks like they are beginning the work of placing the sections of the four big columns that are part of the main arch on the west "fassade." Correct me, if I'm wrong.

Yep, you are right. They are at a point where they have to erect the pillars as support or else they couldn't continue the cladding of the upper part of the portal. Same with the Portals of Schlüterhof that Erbse posted above.

The Scale of the Palace is Huge!

The scale of the palace is a lot bigger than it appears in photographs. Only by looking at the progress of the work using the web camera and seeing the workmen standing by a window or other feature do you understand the real scale of things. Currently, there are two drums for the large columns for the large arched portal on the west "fassade" that are standing on the ground waiting to be hoisted into place. Only when a workman stands by one of them do you realize that each drum is approximately two meters tall and one meter in diameter.

Well, the Stadtschloss was (and will be) one of the largest inner city palaces in Europe. It's comparable or even bigger in size than Buckingham Palace, Madrid Royal Palace or Stockholm Royal Palace. There are a few bigger European palaces though, like the Louvre, the Hermitage or Munich's Residenz.
