They will probably not be really impressed with the Schloss once its finished
It's a beautiful building. Are there beautiful buildings all over Europe? Sure, but that doesn't mean Berlin has to remain a butt ugly city. It'll be one of the nicest palaces in Germany and it'll make a great ensemble along with the Dom, the Museum's Island and the end of Unter den Linden (Kommandantur, Zeughaus).

If people want to see remnants of the GDR and it's realsocialist architecture, they can go to Alexanderplatz. Heck, right next door to the Schloss will be the Staatsratsgebäude, the place where important decisions were actually made. I've said it before, the Palast housed a neutered parliament which had no say whatsoever so I don't see why it has any true historic value.

I see your point Checker, but I still don't agree. If the Palace was a beautiful building, then by all means, keep it. But it really was butt ugly. Memories are all very good, but why keep ugly ones.

It's simply time to move on.

Yes they will build a glass roof in the Schlüter Courtyard.

From the offical Website:
The Schlüter Courtyard, covered over with a glass and steel roof, is intended to become the most beautiful festival hall of Berlin. With an area of about 4,000 square meters, it is ideally suited for large gatherings. During the construction of the glass roof, acoustical experts will be at work from the very beginning to obtain the best sound for this space.

it will look similar to the Zeughaus on the other side

Germany lost so much historic architecture during WW2, and Berlin's finances are not in very good shape today to embark on too many grandiose projects anymore. In time, the palace will be restored. We just need to be patient.

This seems to be one of the major projects in the world that will bring back a really old grand structure! I only wish more cities around the world could construct these really beautiful artistic buildings, because I think they're much more valuable than certain other modernist buildings you may find. A bit of a shame to hear the delay of this construction, but just as long as it gets built, I'm happy! Would be nice if it could set a precedent for other cities, but that's pretty doubtful. I guess money and time will always be the issue.

I find this whole project reeking with subtext. It's not just being demolished because its ugly, its because it represents that inconvienient wedge of German history.

I'm going to be in Berlin in July and I'm more interested in the relics of the former East than the West to be honest.

No worry, there is still lots of communist architecture in Berlin. Make sure that you dont miss the wunderschoene Alexanderplatz. Here with "House of the Teacher" in the background (left pic).

What, Nazism?

Anyway, looks like construction on the palace will start in 2010.
