Hello, everyone together! I hope everyone has a nice day!!

The Benkertstrasse 21 used to have a little theater! That is why the paintings are s beautiful! More and more paintings being discovered and that right in front of the customers, because the restaurant is open for the public during historical research!
Some people have nice conversations with the reservation team. Here more recent discoveries:






I do not know from what year, or if the place was for training or open shows. It is amazing! The paintings where hidden behind "new" paint:



Thank you Potsdam-fan for the pictures!

Now to the colonnades at the castle.
dbmillbank and others are wondering about the statues of both.
The statues of the "Ringer" Colonnade (by the Schloss) will come back soon. They are visiting the beauty salon and will come out and back to us nice and relaxed. They are a little bit shy for now. But them statues will come back!












It is very busy by the columns. People are coming and going on mass





And now the Schloss. Lots of statues are missing. Lots of them. The next ones will come back this summer.



At the neighbor "Old City hall" most statues survived. The statues look more feminism, too!




Back to the Stadt Schloss. Lots to do:




This model is in the Schloss itself

Thanks, Potsdam-fan!

Yes, they are. But not as reconstruction. Traditional/modern. Many say "not enough reconstruction".


Others are wondering if those reconstructions will be skipped by surprise like the "Old Post" building


Now about the Film Museum. The whole area has changed dramatically to be polite.
Here some old/new pictures, vola: 1911. Used for horses


Blacksmith working. 1933. Blacksmiths where still working here after the war.


The west gable. renovation 1980


The western gable 1982. On the right the "Interhotel"


Western gable 2016. Now the film museum.


The Marstall called horse stable during the 1980 renovation that turned the building into the film museum


The east gable in the year 1968. The Garrison church Peter and Paul in the background.


detail 1980

The yellow buildings (they are not really green. ) are going to be rebuilt, yes, but they could be rebuilt in a modernist or a more traditional style of architecture. It's up to the developers.
Orange buildings are going to be reconstructed, red buildings survived and unshaded buildings are gone, remain gone or are already replaced by modern buildings.

Thanks for the clarification. Of those buildings that survived, are there local regulations that require the structures to be maintained in their historic form?

Hello everybody and welcome back!

Today is Sunday. Most people have some time today and I believe it is a good time for some updates. Just some minor ones, because its Sunday;-)
After that I like to show some dream pictures! It is winter again and not much else going on.


close to the Schloss "Neue Palais" is the royal railway station "Kaiserbahnhof". Close to the station is a water tower. The water tower was build 1910 and used until 1980. The tower was unused until sold to a architect 2014. Since 2016 the owner is renovating this special build.
The renovation comes along. See for yourself:



This is today:


The tower with the small buildings around is one property:










I wonder how much money it took for the tower conversion? Also wonder of how it is inside.

Thanks, Potsdam-fan!

We jump back to the "Charlottenstrasse 109"
Some paint needs to be applied around the doors to be finished.


This is the original front plan from Mr.Ziller. The original designer! (They have the original paperwork!)

The whole Charlottenstrasse is almost finished!








Many pubs have a Biergaten out back "im Hof" among trees! If you visit the town try it!

I have a special treat for everyone!
The following pictures are from one place build for meditation! It has lust building called "Stibadium". A lust building is a build with no purpose. Build just for the "lust" of it. Or call it for its "desire".

This place is called "Stibadium" (Witch means sit and study, relax) and it is in the botanic gardens in Sanssouci. The place is one of my favorite if I need time out for relaxation. It is perfect dream location for Yoga or Meditation. This kind used to exist before globalization in the west, too. The west just called it different!











A Temple for Meditation




















The glass vases reflect light in different colors! There is a water fountain inside!




















source, thanks Spreetunnel!

Curious how often Kaiser Wilhelm II used the meditation temple during his reign. He was an interesting fellow in terms of various interests and experiential lifestyle, so he may have found meditative arts interesting, although his behavior didn't always suggest a calm person.

The new cap on the water tower looks horrible. Nothing is integrated with the base. Very strange; looks like a carnival ride.

The Stibadium was partly reconstructed like 4-5 years ago, wasn't it? Lovely place.

I do not know of any reconstruction here. Wikipedia says that it was build 1840.
Way before 2nd Kaiser Reich. But I don't think they used it a lot!-)


This part of garden has the theme Paradise Garden.
