At present, it is public street land that within the framework of planning the repair of the urban layout has been declared a construction lot. Its situation on the future reconstructed Schlossplatz is unique and a matter of public importance. Transcending by far the function of spatial closure of the square, it constitutes both an obligation and a challenge.
