München (Munich), Germany

Yesterday I went to Munich and took some pictures of the oldtown.
About 90% of the oldtown were destroyed by allied bombings during WWII.
Nevertheless, there are some nice places to explore.

I hope you like it!

I've explored that part of Munich where St Salvator is and it appeared to have lots of old buildings together with new. Very classy built environment, old and new.

Anyway, I'd like to know how much of the old town was rebuilt and what exactly do you mean by old town, is that pre-19th century planning, such as the grand boulevards of Ludwigstrasse and Maximilianstrasse? Just interested. Great shots.

Hello!

Here you can see an interesting map (1945) showing the destruction of Munichs city centre which roughly corresponds to the "old town" area.

I added the location of St. Salvator so you can see that there are some buildings which weren't damaged or just partly damaged.

yellow = total loss
some the facades were still intact (more or less), so they could reconstruct the exterior of the buildings afterwards (e.g. the residence, national theatre...).
Unfortunately, sometimes in a simplified version.

red = extensive damage
brown = moderate damage
blue = partial loss
black = undamaged/minor damage

Of course there were areas which already contained buildings from 19th or 20th century.

Munich did a great job in rebuilding its churches (facades and interiors).
There are many post-war buildings in the oldtown which try to imitate their pre-war counterparts in shape and colours. Some of them look ok, others don't.

Especially the area south of Marienplatz contains many hideous buildings.:

Rindermarkt

Rosental

Färbergraben
http://goo.gl/maps/Ok0jq
Oberanger
http://goo.gl/maps/xUE3S

Most facades at Ludwigstraße are reconstructions too, but this area doesn't belong to the oldtown anymore.

And let's not forget that also in Munich some buildings were destroyed in the 50s/60s...

Sorry for my English.
