Kaiser Wilhelm II


Empress Augusta Viktoria:


It was 100 years ago today that Kaiser Wilhelm II was informed his abdication was necessary and was considered done. His abdication was formalized later in the month. While his political legacy is debated by historians, his Wilhelmine legacy for the architecture and building projects commenced and fulfilled during his reign is unquestionably glorious.

I concur. I mostly hate the guy but I'm a sucker for Willhelmine architecture and the grand ambitions of that time coupled with the "anything goes" attitude.

The Friedrichstrasse Passage was essentially the world's first indoor commercial mall, contrary to conventional wisdom and most latter 20th century American histories.

That mall is superb. Is the current Mall of Berlin built on the same site or was the old one somewhere else?

The Mall of Berlin is at Leipziger Platz and the Friedrichstrasse Passage was quite several blocks north and east between Friedrichstrasse and Oranienburger Strasse.

The Mall of Berlin attempts create to the retail atmosphere of the former, very large Wertheim Department store which was on the site before WWII.

Cheers. I just thought the facades of the shops looked similar as if it was a reconstruction.

On a slightly different note, is The Westin Grand on the site of the Kaisergalerie?

keepthepast, you are right, unlike the modern Mall, the Passage was located to the north of the Spree river... And yes, the Westin Grand is standing on the site of the Kaisergalerie. Here are a few more big-size photos from pre-war Germany... Frankfurt. Residential and commercial buildings








Cologne


Doorway of the old city library


New wing of the City Hall


Residential building in Stuttgart


Berlin. Palais Reichenheim


Palais Borsig




Villa Knoop in Bremen




Villa Fritze


Kiel. Stadttheater

Thanks to Cedric Benetti for these amazing photos, which I've found in his architectural blog.

Does anyone know the address of this building? I assume it was destroyed in the war.

I can't say anything about its interior, but I actually know that its facades were partially redecorated in 1949

Before the war...


...and after
