Figurines of Berlin New Castle

For reconstruction sculptural elements of façade decoration of Berlin´s new castle, in summer 2011 a special working studio has been opened in Berlin-Spandau. Here, all different elements like capitals and cartouches, figurines and consoles, will be fabricated accordingly to old traditional techniques. They are following parameters of architect Andreas Schlüter, who has created and designed the former castle facades. Never again, interested people will have the opportunity watching these figurines so close in every single detail as later they will hang up to 25 meters high. Excursions will start at Humboldt Box, exhibition center in front of New Castle, by bus to the working place in Spandau. There, a guided tour will explain everything and by bus, guests will go back to Humboldtbox.
