Fundraising promise met

€ 105 million to rebuild palace façades – Federal President Steinmeier thanks all donors

The fundraising target was reached just in time for completion and before the large new cultural centre was opened. The Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss (Humboldt Forum Foundation at the Berlin Palace) and the Förderverein Berliner Schloss e.V. (Association of Friends of the Berlin Palace) are to thank all donors for their generous civic commitment with an exclusive live broadcast from the Berliner Schloss Humboldt Forum. The fact that it has been possible to rebuild the palaces’ baroque façades in the centre of the capital of Germany is mainly and largely due to the tireless efforts of Wilhelm von Boddien, the Managing Director at the Förderverein Berliner Schloss e. V.
