Schlüter's works can still be found dotted across the city to this day. Five sites featuring some of his most important works can be viewed every Sunday on a walking tour. The works consist of the ornate helmet reliefs on the exterior façade of the Zeughaus on Unter den Linden and the masks of dying warriors in the museum's Schlüter Courtyard, the tomb of Männlich, the court goldsmith, in the Nikolaikirche, the pulpit à la Bernini in the Marienkirche and the opulent sarcophagi in the Berlin Cathedral. The tour also encompasses the sample façade for the Palace currently being reconstructed.
