  • "Every stucco and windowsill were originally reconstructed, even the street-lamps and a advertising column with posters."—Berliner Kurier (29 May 2005)
  • "... nothing is more spectacular than this kind of view the movie shows. Not only for historians it is a useful work. Everybody comes to rhapsodize because of the gigantic, rich decorated, monumental government buildings out of the 19th century."—PSM
