Tour of the construction site at and in the Peacock Island Castle on the occasion of UNESCO World Heritage Day

After the repair of the facade of the castle on the Peacock Island and the dismantling of the scaffolding were completed in the spring, the project restorer Dr. Ute Joksch and the project manager Christopher Lawrence Matz presented the current status of the extensive renovation and restoration measures.



The participants gain insight into the diverse measures on the facade, including the repair of Berlin's oldest cast iron bridge, which was built in 1804, the complex, newly created wooden cladding of the half-timbered building, the "petrified" surface as well as the roof and tower construction.


The interiors are also shown with the background and results of the conservation of the valuable wall surfaces made of paper, textile and wood that have been preserved in their original condition, as well as the panel parquet and the restoration of the stair tower. On UNESCO World Heritage Day, the diversity of historical construction methods can be learned about here under the motto “Discover and experience diversity”.


Please wear sturdy shoes and allow enough time before the start of the event to take the ferry from the pier on Nikolskoer Weg to Peacock Island and the castle.
