was to the projected renewal of the German capital Berlin during the Nazi period, part of Adolf Hitler's vision for the future of Nazi Germany after the planned victory inWorld War II. Albert Speer, the "first architect of the Third Reich", produced many of the plans for the rebuilt city in his capacity as overseer of the project, only a small portion of which was realized between the years 1937 and 1943 when construction took place.

Some projects, such as the creation of a great East-West city axis, which included broadening Charlottenburger Chaussee (todayStraße des 17. Juni) and placing the Berlin victory column in the centre, far away from the Reichstag, where it originally stood, were completed. Others, however, such as the creation of the Große Halle (Great Hall), had to be shelved owing to the beginning of war. A great number of the old buildings in many of the planned construction areas were, however, demolished before the war, and eventually defeat stopped the plans.




At the northern end of the avenue on the site of the Königsplatz (now the Platz der Republik) there was to be a large open forum known as Großer Platz with an area of around 350,000 square metres (3,767,369 square feet). This square was to be surrounded by the grandest buildings of all, with the Führer's palace on the west side on the site of the former Kroll Opera House, the 1894 Reichstag Building on the east side and the third Reich Chancellery and high command of the German Army on the south side (on either side of the square's entrance from the Avenue of Splendours). On the north side of the plaza, straddling the River Spree, Speer planned to build the centrepiece of the new Berlin, an enormous domed building, the Volkshalle (people's hall), designed by Hitler himself. It would still remain the largest enclosed space in the world had it been built. Although war came before work could begin, all the necessary land was acquired, and the engineering plans were worked out. The building would have been over 200 metres (656 feet) high and 250 metres (820 feet) in diameter, sixteen times larger than the dome of St. Peter's Basilica.

Hello, I'm also interested on this project, and I would really like to know what resources you've used for reference, thank you!
When it will be finished? Everybody can't wait to see this 100% complete.

Você gosta da arquitetura de Speer? Estou tentando refazer todo o eixo norte sul utilizando Autocad, 3d max e Vray, porém está difícil conseguir referências.
O que é Speer?

Não é o quê, mas quem... Era o arquiteto de Hitler que fazia os projetos de Germania.
Entendi.

A architectura nazi não he feia, he bonita. Simplesmente he hum neo-classico despojado de ornamentação, mas a imponencia do neo-classicismo permanece.
Yea Really impatient to download it
I am not impatient to download it but to see it finished.

Such a majestic city... amazing!
I love ambicious city projects like this and even more if they are as unique.
And I think dearing to add a bit more arboleas here and there with custom trees and maybe some vehicles would magnify the looks of the already existing buildings.
It strikes me that I haven't come across this project, hope to see an update soon.

What texture pack do you use?
I use my own texture pack, which I made based on the faithful texture pack.
Comment on the Volkshalle, since I've been following this project for ever now: Not that it matters really, but I always thought the dome was supposed to be made of copper sheets over a steel-reinforced skeleton structure, giving it the color of a turquoise patina or at least a metallic brown. I also believe the portico columns were meant to be made of red granite. Are you aware of anything that mentions the specific materials used in the buildings of the Adolf Hitler-Platz or did you choose white for the ultimate neoclassical feel? Truly I'm not sure on either since I too have always had trouble finding original architectural material on this morbidly fascinating subject. Otherwise, excellent work; I can't wait till it's done. I'm most excited to see the interiors of the Volkshalle, the Sudbanhof and Nordbanhod, and the New Reich Chancellery. Keep it up!
Thanks for the helpful comment. The color of the Volkshalle dome I have not yet determined, the current version you can see on my wall post. I also do not think the color of the columns is correct, it will change for greater credibility. To be honest, information about this project is getting less and less for me, so I already sent a couple of requests to the archives. But I will be grateful for any information assistance from outside. Once again, I thank you for honest criticism, and not a request to put the project on the download :D

ReichsBaumeister are you nearing completion of the north south axis? Loads of people including me can't wait for the download link!
No, this axis is not yet ready. But work on it will soon be actively pursued.
Hallo ReichsBaumeister.
I am a huge huge National Socialism history buff, and this is truly one of the best projects I have ever seen. I made a planet minecraft account to tell you. To see Germania come alive and in such detail and color is breathtaking. I hope that you complete the South-Axis one day and release this. You are truly skilled and talented and im humbled by this project and hope for the chance one day to explore this groundbreaking city.
Thank you & good luck
I will be following this :)
Thank you! The hardest part of my job is to find accurate information.
I believe it! There is so little around about the Fuhrer Cities. Really truly interesting stuff though.
Please tell me this project is still alive. Im stunned.
The project is alive. I work :)
Sehr gut! Heil dir.

Wow. Please a download link!!!
Very well done! The rework of the buildings has done wonders, it looks absolutely perfect. If I may ask a few questions, do some of the buildings have interiors? I know not all are documented but neglecting atleast the interior of the Great Hall and Reichs Kanzlei would be a missed opportunity. Also how much of the plans are you aiming at reconstructing? I imagine doing the entire city would be a bit ridiculous?
1. I plan to do the interior as soon as you get information about what the interior should be there.
Of course, the Great Hall of the Reich Chancellery will be the most detailed .
2. I want to make as more as possible. Specifically, I want to make the main axis North-South.
Mt bom, adorei
Elle não vai entender esse "Mt" como "muito" mas sim "mount", de montanha.

i don't approve what the nazis done but we have to admit that Speer architecture was grandiose. It's the hugeness and the absurdness of buildings which get them beautiful. And you made this perfectly ! GREAT job

I love your builds! (I became fascinated in Nazi Buildings after watching the Man in the High Castle). I was wondering when the download was coming? And also, I saw your Russian group thing and was wondering what program u were using to make the people like that (seating, handshake), army of people, scaling down (cars, helmet, etc) and stuff. Thanks!
Thank you. I plan to add the map download when i will complete the north-south axis of the city.
To create this images I use a program such as Cinema 4d and Mine-imator.
