With the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace, Berlin will soon have an important and spectacular building on Museum Island again. Almost all the originals of the residence castle, built and extended many times since 1442, were destroyed in the last war or destroyed with the blasting in 1950.

These include the famous mythological figures from the tea salon of Crown Princess Elisabeth by Christian Friedrich Tieck, architectural sculpture by Andreas Schlüter and various stucco decorations from various interiors of the castle.
