The Marineschule Mürwik (Naval academy Mürwik) ist the main training center of the German Navy. It is placed in Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein. Built between 1907 and 1910, the architecture was intended to resemble the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Marienburg (poln. Malbork).

Another building from Leipzig: Located in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany, the building (German: Reichsgerichtsgebäude) was designed by Ludwig Hoffmann and Peter Dybwad, and construction was completed in 1895. It is designed in the Italian renaissance style and features two large courtyards, a central cupola and a large portico at the entrance.[4] The rich decorative gable and sculptures are by Otto Lessing. After the reunification, the former Reichsgericht building was renovated and became the seat of the Bundesverwaltungsgericht (Federal Administrative Court).

Wow, you are so fast, to post some of my favorite buildings, that I was planning to post sooner or later myself, haha. But please go on, you are doing a great job! Thanks so much for contributing to this thread. (Thanks also to alexandru and Saxonia! )
You seem very knowledgeable/interested in German 19th century architecture for someone from Sweden, Eaglesword. How come?

I hope you, you don't mind me posting some more interior views of the Bundesverwaltungsgericht in Leipzig, as they are so amazing:

This seems to be taking some inspiration from its Royal Navy counterpart at Dartmouth...

haha ofc no problems I enjoy uploading photos here so I do it fast I have under a long time been liking European architecture from the 1700s to around 1920 and because of Germany being such a rich country in that time they have a lot of architectural wonders and Reichsgericht is one of the favorite buildings in the world. You did the right thing to upload more interior, it is really outstanding. I haven't been to Sachsen yet but I will hopefully soon. Btw, yes I am from Sweden but in two weeks I will be moving to Freiburg in Germany so maybe that proves something But I will continue to upload photos here, it is really a great thread!

Okay, another rathaus in Germany: The New Town Hall (German: Neues Rathaus) is a town hall at the northern part of Marienplatz in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It hosts the city government including the city council, offices of the mayors and part of the administration. In 1874 the municipality had left the Old Town Hall for its new domicile. It was built between 1867 and 1908 by Georg von Hauberrisser in a Gothic Revival architecture style. It covers an area of 9159 m² having 400 rooms. The 100 meters long main facade towards the Marienplatz is richly decorated. It shows the Guelph Duke Henry the Lion, and almost the entire line of the Wittelsbach dynasty in Bavaria and is the largest princely cycle in a German town hall. The central monument in the center of the main facade between the two phases at Marienplatz above the guard house, is an equestrian statue of Prince Regent Luitpold. The bay of the tower contains statues of the first four Bavarian kings.

nice buildings

The Bizkaia Delegation Palace is an eclectic mansion in the Ensanche area of Bilbao, Spain. It's the seat of the executive branch of Government of Biscay, the legislative assembly meets in Gernika. It was built between 1890 and 1900 by architect Luis Aladren, by the Gran Vía de Don Diego López de Haro avenue.

I know this building was completed a bit before the given date but however: Helsinki City Hall (Finnish: Helsingin kaupungintalo, Swedish: Helsingfors stadshus) is a central administrative building of City of Helsinki, Finland. The city hall is located in the Kruununhaka district next to Market Square, at address Pohjoisesplanadi 11–13. Completed in 1833, the building originally served as Hotel Seurahuone and was an important cultural facility hosting many premieres. The hotel was designed by Carl Ludvig Engel who also designed the major buildings around the nearby Senate Square. The city purchased the building in 1901 and, after the hotel moved out in 1913, renovated it as a city hall. Following an architectural competition the City Hall was radically remodeled by architect Aarno Ruusuvuori in 1965–70, replacing many of the old classical interiors and building modern glass-facaded insertions.

I hope this building is okay, it is state owned building but isn't used by the government: The Nordic Museum (Swedish: Nordiska museet) is a museum located on Djurgården, an island in central Stockholm, Sweden, dedicated to the cultural history and ethnography of Sweden from the Early Modern age (which for purposes of Swedish history is said to begin in 1520) until the contemporary period. The museum was founded in the late 19th century by Artur Hazelius, who also founded the open-air museum Skansen, long part of the museum, until the institutions were made independent of each other in 1963.

The present building, the design of Isak Gustaf Clason, was completed in 1907. Originally, it was intended to be a national monument housing the material inheritance of the nation. It was, however, only half-completed for the Stockholm Exposition 1897, and it never was completed to the extent originally planned, three times the actual size. It takes its style from Dutch-influenced Danish Renaissance architecture (i.e. buildings such as Frederiksborg Palace) rather than any specifically Swedish historical models. The core of the "cathedralesque" building is taken up by a huge main hall passing through all the stories up to the roof and dominated by the enormous sculpture of King Gustav Vasa, the Swedish so called founder-king. For the construction, brick and granite was used for the walls, while concrete was used for the roof.

Manchester Town Hall is a Victorian, Neo-gothic municipal building in Manchester, England. It is the ceremonial headquarters of Manchester City Council and houses a number of local government departments. The building faces Albert Square to the north, featuring the Albert Memorial and St Peter's Square to the south, home to The Cenotaph.

Designed by architect Alfred Waterhouse, the town hall was completed in 1877. The building contains offices and grand ceremonial rooms such as the Great Hall which is decorated with Ford Madox Brown's imposing Manchester Murals illustrating the history of the city. The entrance and Sculpture Hall contain busts and statues of influential figures including Dalton, Joule and Barbirolli. The exterior is dominated by the clock tower which rises to 280 feet (85 m) and houses Great Abel, the clock bell.

Rotterdam City Hall, built 1914-1920. Designed by Henri Evers the structure is a mixture of various Netherlandish historical styles. It is one of the very few buildings in the city center that surived the German bombing of 1940.

Good shout, many of the best and most imposing buildings of the era were built as museums. I guess it was considered that shelters of identity go hand in hand with the shelters of authority. I'm thinking of the National Catalan Museum (a bit late but the same architectural style), the Natural History Museum in London, the Rijksmuseum etc.

The Swedish Museum of Natural History (Swedish: Naturhistoriska riksmuseet, literally, the National Museum of Natural History), in Stockholm, is one of two major museums of natural history in Sweden. The present buildings for the museum in Frescati, Stockholm, was designed by the architect Axel Anderberg and completed in 1916, topped with a dome. As of 2014 it is the largest museum building in Sweden. The main campus of Stockholm University was later built next to the museum. The museum has an IMAX cinema called Cosmonova. The cinema is also the largest planetarium in Sweden.

How about we post the first church in this thread?

Berlin Cathedral is a protestant church, that was designed by Julius and Otto Raschdorff (father and son) in neo-renaissance and neo-baroque style and was inaugurated by German Emperor Wilhelm II in 1905. The structure was heavily destroyed in WWII and has been rebuilt with slight modifications to the domes.

The lavish interior was painstakingly renovated after the war, so that it today seems, as if it had never been destroyed:

wow, this interior I must say that the recreator did a great job after ww2. If I do remember correctly, wasn't the building located in east Berlin. If so it does surprise me how well the commies remade it Now I do really regret my decision not paying those 7 euros to enter the church.

How about this massive beaut, though:

Palace of the Argentine National Congress (1898 - 1906)



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace...ional_Congress

Woof!

Surely there are loads of examples in Latin America, maybe someone better equiped can guide us through the best ones? Especially Argentina and Mexico should be a great hunting ground for examples.
