Buddy Bear Quadriga at Neues Kranzler Eck
30th April 2010, Berlin gained a new attraction. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Neues Kranzler Eck right next to the boulevard Kurfürstendamm. Unveiling the Buddy Bear Quadriga was the absolute highlight at the launch of the festivities.
The Governing Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, attended the event: “I would like to welcome the Buddy Bear Quadriga in the City West. […] This site at the Kurfürstendamm is a great location for these ambassadors of Berlin. They add a nice and friendly touch to this attractive modern space.“ The District Mayor of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Monika Thiemen, the Centre Manager Heidrun Quilitzsch, Eva and Klaus Herlitz and the actress Rebecca Lina, patron of the impressive sculpture group, were delighted to see the new attraction at Neues Kranzler Eck.
Development of the Buddy Bear Quadriga
The quadriga (approx. 4m high) - featuring five gold-coloured bears and a carriage on a solid base (25sqm) – is the brainchild of the artists Marina and Andreas Bitter, who were also in charge of its execution.
