Quite a few of the surrounding buildings still exist and the 3 main ones occupying the square still exist too. The large building to the top right still there as well. There are a lot more depressing before after views of berlin than this! Great photo though

Actually a lot. That area doesn't look much different now from that aerial photo.

Not sure what you mean by "a lot". While most of the building heights and footprints are similar to former times, the facades (and roof tops too) are mostly different. The aerial view does appear similar to pre war, but walking the streets gives a very different impression.

Well, yes you're right. I guess I meant that the entire Gendarmenmarkt is still there (all three buildings) which is a large part of that photo. It's glorious. And that the surrounding buildings follow the same grid and proportions and many of them seem to be historic if not exact replicas of the original pre-war buildings. I see quite a few beautiful historic facades in the area. The district doesn't give you a sad feeling of a formerly glorious district that was wiped-out by war and replaced with all modern atrocities as in many other areas.

dismantled in 1922 in order to widen the streets.
an ornament which "survived" the demolition was incorporated into the train station building behind it:

I feel so sad when I see these pics from Berlin! Are there some initiatives for reconstructing at least some prewar buildings like the reconstruction of Stadtschloss?
Looking at those photos I think that Berlin would have been as beautiful as Vienna, Sankt Peterburg or Paris if there wasn't the WWII destruction.

In spite of the devastating bombing attacks in the war, Augsburg is today gives a very nice example of a mid size German city before the war. Rebuilding there was more thoughtful.

Surprising to see this room in 1930 without having been plundered over the past 12 years

Both harpsichords were made by Gottfried Siblermann; the one in the Neues Palais is dated 1747 and was made in Freiberg..

Speisezimmer in the Stadtschloß, Potsdam

The Speisezimmer was the first of the rooms leading to King's chambers. From there, an admitted visitor would enter the Konzertzimmer (seen above), then through the small Zedernzimmer to the King's small studio and, finally, to the royal bedchamber and library.

in 1912

If you're interested, you can check this page with lots of pictures and information on the interior layout of the palace. But be warned: if you do, you'll be there a while. I just found it and I can see the person who collected the images put a lot of dedication into it.
