    What's your take on these treasures folks? What happened to them? Will they ever find them?

    The Amber Room! Heard the Germans buried it. People are still looking for it all over Germany. Nobody has found it yet. Some guy thought he had it about 2 years ago. Ended up digging up a sewage pipe.

    As two surviving pieces eloquately tell us, the amber room still exists, sowmwhere. A collegue of mine was interviewed 5 years ago if he could assist in an excavation aiming for the amber room but it turned out to be nothing and he wisely spend funding on more interesting sites...

    Those pieces were from someone who helped dismantle it. He could of simply pilfered the peices while the rest of the Room was prepared for storage. They far from suggest that the Amber Room is still intact.

    Hi from Spain,

    This is my first message in this forum, and sorry because my english is not very good.

    I've read that ambar room, that was a present from Friedrich "Der Grosse", to the Zarin Katharina and today is in the bottom of the Baltic sea, with the "Wilhelm Gustalhof".


    Regards from Spain. :lol:

    I think the Amber Room is either in one of 2 places. It is eithe burried near the former town of Danzig or the Russians took it. Just my take on it.

    The Russians probably have a lot of the stuff that is listed as missing either that or it is buried in various places...

    What would you do if you knew where one of these treasures were, keep quiet or dig it up?

    I would think it should return to the rightful owners.
