Schlossholz

the historical wooden treasure from the heart of the German capital

When we saw it, we knew we had to do something with it!


Schlossholz In the course of the construction work on the "Schlossplatz", the historical foundation construction of the Berlin "Stadtschloss" (City Palace) was uncovered from the soil.
The discovery consisted of ancient pylons of spruce and pine as well as beams of oak, which had carried the historical buildings in the center of the German capital for centuries, and all this well below the ground water level.

Wood which is so old, is not only rare, but very rarely in a state that allows processing. However, this wood was different: it has been preserved for centuries, the oak planks had become "bog oak". The overall condition of the wood is excellent. It has a similar quality as if it was freshly cut, but with a history dating back to around the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the early Modern Period.


Schlossholz The wooden pylons were rammed into the soil between 1680 and 1710, and at this point the trees were between 100 and 150 years old: So here was this wooden treasure with a fantastic history and the fascinating location. The oldest trees started growing around the year 1500. This is about the time when Martin Luther put his "95 Theses" on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, and thus began the Reformation Movement. They were already mighty trees in the forests around Berlin, when people sought refuge there during the turmoil of the Thirty Years' War in the 17th century. They were cut and pounded into the ground, at a time, when Berlin allowed the immigration of the persecuted minority of French Huguenots, versed and specialized craftsmen who were to play a large role in building the City Castle in the years to come.



Schlossholz The centuries when the wood carried the City Palace in central Berlin, experienced among others the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, the formation of the German Confederation, the establishment of the German Empire in 1871 with the following founding period and Berlin becoming a major international metropolis, the increasing militarism of the German Empire, the First World War, the Weimar Republic, the Nazi period, and finally the Second World War with the almost complete destruction of the City Palace and the later demolition of the ruins at the beginning of the 1950s. After that, the construction of the East German "Palace of the Republic" proceeded by the fall of the Wall and then - in the 2000s - the removal of the Palace of the Republic. Finally, the structure was exposed and excavated during the reconstruction work on the Berlin City Palace.


Sometimes there are materials, products and substances to which a special aura adheres due to its history. This is definitely so with the Schlossholz.
