Lonely Planet review

After the fall of the Wall, the Palast closed instantly because of asbestos contamination. Years of debate resulted in the demolition of the behemoth and the plan to build an exact replica of the Prussian palace shell but with a modern interior. To be called Humboldt Forum , it will shelter art and artefacts from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas currently on display in the far-flung suburb of Dahlem, as well as a library and a research facility. It’s slated to be completed in time for the 25th anniversary of reunification in 2015. For a preview of what’s to come, drop by the Berliner Schloss Infocenter .
