Simply the art does nothing for you or the political and historical explosive behind the "Fassade" which literraly means both the outiside of a building and the external impact of the prussian reign(hiding all it's controversial contens).
Thanks, interesting discussion here.

I think An Ard Ri was talking about the one part of the Fassade who was not rebuild original. And i have to say i agree with him on thhis.

Its the modern/contemporary façade I don't like at all I feel it looks really out pf place and leaves me cold a bit like the modern rebuilt Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

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.
None of them are hoping to rule again nor are many of them hoping to rule
