I thought I wanted to post this in this thread too, as the second one, just to spread what I consider a good idea:

If I was asked to decide, I would rebuild all waterfronts of the Spree along the southern part of the museumsinsel as a first priority. Why?

a) Berlin was a city of water, with single views remniscent of Amsterdam or Venice. The widening of the Spree where the museumsinsel comes to its southern end was the urban vortex of this "city on water" - now completely lost. It`s an unlosable, but lost, part of Berlin`s soul. Regaining it would add tremendously to the city`s magic.

b) Compared to the Alexanderplatz and the parts of the old center lying east of the museumsinsel, there are no DDR monuments "requiring" preservation. The only "sacrifice" would be some less famous residential blocks from the DDR times. Thus, if the right people would catch on the idea, it seems less unrealistic than rebuilding the central east bank of the Spree.

c) If one agrees that Berlins historical center runs from the Brandenburg gate and eastwards, the "city on water" (as I here call it) is the first area lying next to the present city center, actually as the southern part of the museumsinsel. In terms of "healing" the city center, thus, rebuilding the "city on water" is a more potent first step than rebuilding the Sprees central east bank incl. Alex (which honestly isn`t going to happen anyway).

The red-blue encircled area is that I talk about. This is a pre-war map:


Here`s a few impressions of what we talk of:

even though I can't watch old photos of Berlin, because they are heartbreaking, I don't think Berlin is THAT city.
Berlin has it's own distinctive feel to it; when I think of Berlin I don't have a picture of some old city in my head with old architecture...I think of its modern architecture and urban culture and that's what makes him different from other cities. I understand reconstructions like in Dresden, but I feel Berlin is not that kind of a city.

I assume because it wasn't profitable and someone thought it would be a good idea to turn it into office blocks.

I`m not a Berliner, so I can´t have as strong an opinion of what Berlin is and isnt, should and shouldnt be - as one who lives there.

I would just like to replace the commieblocks that share the grandious Museumsinsel and recreate Neukölln am Wasser including its opposite Spree-shores. Even if it isnt recreated historically, the commie blocks should go and the area be redeveloped urbanly and cosmopolitically - with extraordinary attention to on the riverside apprarance. After all, we talk of a small area here, and one so central and historical as to lie within the oldest, fortified Berlin. Having it developed the way I just suggested would vastly expand the feeling of Berlins historical center as that of a true world class metropolis.

In the vast Gründerzeit areas of Berlins concentric perimeter, I wouldnt suggest a complete reconstruction of any whole area. Even here, however, I would love to see redevelopments according to the principle: "gradually replace atrocious mistakes with something urban-cosmpoolitan of high quality". As to that, "Kottbusser Tor" is the place to begin. It destroys the reputation of a whole great Stadtteil.

Augsburg, often a forgotten pre-war medieval gem that silently lives in the shadow of Munich. Well worth a visit to see a fairly good amount of historic buildings.

Btw.: The new building will be demolished or completely remodeled. The city of Frankfurt is getting lots of jobs from London. But the newcomers require more cultural venues. I would love to see a split in two: A new fancy building and this old fancy one redone.

That reminds of one another Koln's suspension bridge: the Mülheimer bridge from 1929.
Belgrade had an almost exact copy of it: King Alexander bridge (It was a modified project of Mülheimer bridge) , but it didn't survive the war, and unlike Mülheimer bridge it was reconstructed as a different bridge after the war.
