The Berlin City Palace (German: Berliner Stadtschloss, Berliner Schloss or simply Stadtschloss) was a royal and imperial palace in the centre of Berlin, the historical capital of Prussia, and subsequently Germany. It was located on the Museum Island at Schlossplatz, opposite the Lustgarten park. It was the winter residence of the Kings of Prussia and the German Emperors.
The palace was originally built in the 15th century and changed throughout the next few centuries.
 Heavily damaged by Allied bombing in World War II, although possible to repair at great expense, the palace was demolished in 1950 by the German Democratic Republic authorities, despite West German protests.
In 2013 work started on reconstruction and a part of the exterior of the palace has been rebuilt. The completion is expected in 2019. - in: wikipedia
