Up close: explore the historic sculptures of the Berlin Palace: The dimensions of the Sculpture Hall, designed by Italian architect Franco Stella, correspond to those of the Berlin Palace’s large Baroque staircase hall that once stood on this site.
On display here are fragments of the Palace from several centuries. Many of them were part of the Baroque facade decoration designed by the palace architect Andreas Schlüter (1634–1714), who came from Danzig (now Gdańsk in Poland).
They include six colossal figures that once crowned the main gateway to the courtyard. In their splendour and symbolism they illustrate the growing claim to power of the House of Hohenzollern within Europe around 1700.
The exhibition offers insights into the fascinating history of the origins of the historical sculptures as well as their replicas.
