Can you guys please stick to the topic of this thread? (You can reread the opening post, if you forgot about it.)

Because this type/style of 19th century housing was very similar in Central Europe and Scandinavia. You will find many quarters like this in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway etc. In German we call it "Gründerzeit".

And also most Norwegian architects at that time had studied in Germany and therefore were strongly influenced by German architecture. Norway didn't get its own architecture school until 1910.

The pictures are again a little gloomy, but they give a good overview of the ongoing restauration and reconstruction of the boulevard Unter den Linden. Another puzzle piece, the reconstruction of the State Library's roof and dome.

Last but not least let's have a closer look at the beautiful neoclassicist statue of Frederick the Great:

Marvelous detail. I am very glad to see the palace being restored. That alone makes a return visit worthwhile

When I visited Berlin earlier this year I saw that the building was newly painted. But to be honest, I liked it more when it was gray..

The photos show somewhat different shades of cream/beige. Not bad, actually, except if the reality is almost white. But i agree, the more natural stone color makes for a more suitable neo-gothic image.

wonderful images, Tiaren. Unfortunately, the interior of the Friederichwerder Church no longer exists as shown. The wonderful display has been removed and the interior closed to access, resulting from building structural issues. I believe it's partly or largely due to the heavy amount of luxury condo building constructions in the area. But for whatever reason, that image may never again be seen live and in person.
