The history of the Berlin City Palace

Where the Prussian kings once resided, a new cultural center is being built in Berlin: the Humboldt Forum. Due to technical problems, it will probably not open until 2020 — too late for the Humboldt Year 2019.

The Humboldt Forum was to be launched in celebration of the 250th birthday of the researcher and namesake Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) in November 2019. But due to structural problems, the opening of the mammoth project commemorating German culture has been postponed.
