Description

Lustgarten (German: Lustgarten – “park of comfort”) – a park on Museum Island in central Berlin, was part of the now-existing City Palace. At various times of its existence, the park was used for parades, mass demonstrations and as a city park. By the end of World War II in 1945, Lustgarten was a bombed out wasteland. The German Democratic Republic left the sidewalks of the times of Hitler, but lindens were planted around the whole parade ground to cover the militaristic view of the park. The whole area was renamed Marx and Engels Square. The city palace was destroyed, and then replaced by the modernist Palace of the Republic.nThe movement to restore the Lustgarten park in its previous form began after the reunification of Germany in 1991. In 1997, the Berlin Senate commissioned landscape architect Hans Loydl to rebuild the area in the spirit of Lenne, and construction began in 1998.
