Abstract: This study presents the production, the composition and the resulting properties of a gypsum mortar for restoration work. It is manufactured in the tradition of the medieval gypsum materials used for masonry construction and sculptures. Application possibilities of the mortars will be discussed on the example of the historical city hall of Lüneburg and the New Museum building in Berlin, ranging from static strengthening of gothic brick masonry to ornamental floor screeds (terrazzo).
