Very good. This is almost too good to be true. Will the interior be restored as well?

Those old/new style mixed buildings are so wrong. These could very easily turn out nice, but they are too straight and modern, just doesnt fit. Its too much modernism to be honest. They are much better than the typical modern building, but still, the soul is missing.

The Palais Barberini looks much better than expected. I hope they will put some greens in the court and around the pergola that would make it even better :-)

Partly, for example the vestibule/entrance hall.

The winter is long. Too long. Therefore some pictures:

We move closer to the outskirts, the houses are younger
Still older baroque buildings



Schopenhaus Strasse

Hegelallee




old against Greunderzeit new in front


The other side towards the Jaeger Gate


The lowrise in the back has been demolished. That is where the bank does a critical reconstruction or whatever that may be


We are getting closer to the gruenderzeit parts of town






Gold on top of the old city hall.


The new parts. Gruenderzeit. 1840 - 1920. Very poplar today to be lived in










The former Hans-Otto Theater

The newer parts of town




some units or condos come with a garden. Like common in Europa just a stroll away

What a splendor! The inside usually looks like the outside!




1910, Jugendstil




an old house left a gap



thanks, unify.
Hope you liked it!

Thank you. User unify from APH Forum took the pictures above! He allowed me to post them here.

Some updates before we turn sloppy;-)

Breite Strasse/Yorck Strasse


Yorckpalais, New building, no reconstruction






seen from the plantage ; plantation


The free space is called plantation, for the plating of Maulbeer trees. The leafs where meant to be feed to the silk worms. The business idea went wrong. Wrong trees where planted. There are different Maulbeer trees out there.



picks from Spreetunnel, thanks

The Schloss and Park Babelsberg are coming along after the 10 Million renovation and waterworks rebuild. The fountains will work the first time in 100 Years. The gardeners complained about the praxis to bring water tanks to water the flowers.
The inside will require more attention over the next time.








picks from MAZ news

The gentlemen with the glasses is Mr Hartmut Drogerloh. He is the chair men of Preussen Parks and Garden in Potsdam.
I finely found out that that Potsdam, the secret Capital of Germany, has 30 Castles, 300 other buildings and 2800 acre of gardens! The Parks and Garden Potsdam has a balanced budget with 70 Million a Year, but can't get any major renovations paid with that.
The Federal government therefore decided to pump 400 Million in the projects over the next four years.

Potsdam looks so beautiful. Great to see how the city is being reconstructed. Do any of you guys know when is the canal being filled again?

Oh yes, yes! They are just waiting for some spare water to put in.

Take April or so

I like to show some more updates here not shown before!
I can`t let You guys down now, can I? It`s firkin winter and I like some green! So, therefore let`s update some news from Park Sanssouci, the most importuned Park in Potsdam.

This is the complex of the 'Frieden Kirche" or Peace Church.
Build between 1845 and 1848. The complex was build in the roman style and contains a original Mosaic - Apsis from a church in Italy from 1230! That church was near Venetia and scheduled to be demolished. Prince Fridrich Wilhelm rescued the mosaic for 385 Thaler, {The German currency and name giver of todays Dollar}




The gatehouse "Green Gate"












The new Chambers close by. The windmill is the oldest building and was left for decoration. The garden is called Sicilian Garden



source unify from APH Forum



The Apsis from 1230!






Friedrich Wilhelm is buried here, too.






Kaiser Friedrich mausoleum, inspired by an Austrian tomb. Witch was inspired by a tomb in Jerusalem


inside


The Heilsbronner Portal, a copy of a Portal in the city Heilsbronn

source Winkipedia








thanks, unify

Needs to be renovated



source Potsdam-fan

800 donations are the line right now. 330 000 Euro will help stabilizing the tower so far

The Kaiser Friedrich Mausoleum in the FriedenKirche complex is also the burial place of his wife, Victoria, their two sons who died very young, and for the time being, Friedrich Wilhelm I.

Here is how "Fritz and Vicky" are lying together. It is a stunningly beautiful room.

Today, I like to introduce another little castle. I also like to give a construction update on it. Schloss Charlottenhof. It is a very private and therefore smaller, or should we say smaller looking but not small private castle.



It is located in Potsdam`s most important Park Sanssouci and was build in Classical Style of Roman Villas. Build between 1826 and 1829. Prince Wilhelm just renovated the previous house to save money. The garden is in large from Wilhelm himself.
The waterworks outside are being redone.


Coming from south


Antique sarcophagi, sadly without water dispenser at moment of picture taken. 2011


Pergola and terrace of the castle. Parts of the sleeping floor is lightly underground!




Flowers facing west. In distance the composer`s garden with statues of many famous composer`s and poet`s.


The north side, facing the bedroom of Fridrich Wilhelm and his love, Elisabeth von Wittelsbach




The east side with architect Schinkel`s [Yes, famous Schinkel] "Temple fašade"






In the distance you can still see the Neue Palais


This statue is Paris. He holds an apple. Located south side of the exedra


And this is easy: Hermes. Located on the north side of the exedra


Pergola, looking east.


Apollo with his arrows and Clio, responsible for History records.


This is the back of the exedra, build like romans do with niches for doves or urns...


The paradise garden:


Boy in the paradise garden:


The Ildefonso-Group. One of many copies of that couple. Named after the Spanish place, where it was found from the old roman empire.


They are close to the composers garden on the west. Famous garden designer Lenne designed the Hippodrome behind. The roman car races took place in Hippodromes.
The Hippodrome with a lust building covering a well.



And here to justify the picks, the construction update:


Now:


I can`t get enough. The rose garden. Roses where very favorable in the 19 hundreds


Summer is the best time. Or late spring:-)


This window from Schinkel was inspired from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. From the play "Zauberfloete" It represents the "star night in flames". Master Schinkel liked that a lot


The Hippodrome

Thank you, Spreetunnel!

The mosaic is very interesting.



Quote:
An original Venetian mosaic from the early 13th century decorates the church's apse. While he was crown prince Frederick William had it bought at auction for 385 thalers and brought to Potsdam by boat. The mosaic shows the enthroned Christ with the Book of Life, the right hand upheld in blessing. At each side stand Mary and John the Baptist. Next to them stand the apostle Peter and Saint Cyprian, martyred by beheading in 258 and patron saint of Saint Cipriana, wearing chasubles. As an allegory for the Holy Spirit, a pigeon decorates the vertex of the hemisphere. Over the heads of the archangels Raphael and Michael a lamb shines as a symbol of Christ. On the semicircle of the apse a Latin inscript reads, according to Martin Luther's translation: "Lord, I have love for the site of your house and the place where your glory resides".
