Wummehof

I note from the Nobilia website an article in a German news outlet that the Wummehof has been sold.

(see Wümmehof in Bremen-Borgfeld ist verkauft: Haus Hohenzollern trennt sich vom langjährigen Wohnsitz des Kaiser-Enkels Prinz Louis Ferdinand | Bremen)

If I recall correctly this property was acquired after World War 2 by Louis Ferdinand.

Does anyone know why Louis Ferdinand chose to live in Bremen rather than anywhere else?

Any idea where the Prince and Princess of Prussia will live now?

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Will the Prince and Princess continue to live in Bremen? Their plans may not have been announced.

A short article about Burg Namedy and it's owner, Princess Heide, widow of Prince Godehard of the Hohenzollern Sigmaringen line. He was a grandson of Princess Josephine of Belgium.

Prince Godehard-Friedrich of Hohenzollern (1939-2001) was the youngest son of Prince Albrecht of Hohenzollern (1898-1977) and of his wife, née Ilse-Margot von Friedeburg (1901-1988). In turn, Prince Albrecht was the only son of Prince Karl Anton of Hohenzollern (1868-1919) and of Princess Josephine of Belgium (1872-1958, sister of King Albert I). Prince Karl Anton was the youngest brother of Fürst Wilhelm of Hohenzollern and of King Ferdinand of Romania.

The Imperial Hohenzollern House of Germany will receive 1,2 million euro for the properties taken by the state after 1918:

I think that article is incorrect. The compensation would be for expropriations after World War II by the Soviet Military Government and the DDR. However, it is my understanding that no decision has been made on whether to award the compensation.

You're right. On the one hand it is about the properties taken by the Soviet administration and on the other hand the Brandenburg ministry of the interior has asked for an independent opinion of experts about the involvement of the Prussian Hohenzollerns with the Nazis before any payments will be made.

A proverbial can of worms would also be opened up with regard to many propertied families in the former German Democratic Republic and in western Poland, whose properties were expropriated. While it makes for genuinely poignant family history, for people with titles linked to land in Poland especially can imply a calling into question of the Oder-Neisse border between Germany and Poland.

When one speaks therefore of dynastic restitution of properties east of the former Iron Curtain, it is somewhat reminiscent of the situation of the post-Sandinista government in Nicaragua, when huge US companies incessantly demanded compensation for property in pre-Sandniista times to the extent of it becoming US foreign policy. (All the Sandinistas had to do was to say to the poverty-stricken Nicaraguan electorate: 'Look how the US is treating the government that is supposed to be its friend'; the Sandinistas were later elected to power: with an aura of legitimacy which the incessant demands for restitution by big corporations had ironically given them.)

If formerly reigning dynasties in parts of Eastern Europe ever hope to become established as popular and representative, then concern for the welfare of the common people needs to be a stance that is put way before issues of dynastic property restitution.

Also the not unimportant information that only the façade will be rebuild and the inside will be open, modern and transparent (like the famous Reichstag with it's glass dome) was very missed. What a poor article by such a "quality newspaper".

The rebuilding is coming along nicely as per the photo provided,however there are financial concerns for the facade of the Palace.

Judging from this photo taken in March of this year we can see the rebuilding of the Berliner Stadtschloss is well underway.

I believe they hope to open the museum/palace in 2019. I do not know how building firms work in Germany,but in my own country these projects usually take years and millions extra over the estimated time and budget.

Oh, that's exactly how big building projects in Germany tend to turn out. If it weren't OT, I could give you some great examples of years long delays and exploding costs. So I will be surprised if they are ready to open the museum in 2019.

By judging as it is now, it's hard even to think that in 2019 it will even be a finished bulding, let alone being an opened museum...

And this is what the rebuilt palace should look like,I agree and can't see it being finished on time and on budget.
