We could have built cities from our ruins about ten times greater as Paris, but we prefer to burn the money we work for and live like slaves...

Today, not a part of germany, but it doesn't hurt to post them anyhow in this thread. DonÄt wanna open an extra thread.

I would also add Paris. Not Vichy, but maybe also Dünkirchen.

no. not possible yet. either there are no black and white images of the cities which you could use to compare for "then and now" or no "Birdview"-pics of those cities exists in bingmaps!

sorry, but it's not my fault. Same thing for Paris or Dünkirchen

one for straßburg (a black and white photo, not beeing a part of the series)

The French did a much better job at reconstruction than the Germans it seems. At least in Alsace (they did a pretty bad job at reconstruction in some other regions unfortunately).

Rue de Rohan, Strasbourg, in 1945:

Brisavoine: You should keep good examples of German reconstruction in mind, such as Rothenburg, Münster, partly München or even Nürnberg. Then there are huge amounts of reconstructed churches and castles or other important buildings. The numbers are quite astonishing, considering the harsh situation of post-war Germany.

What's rather surprising or sad and unbelievable is the amount of torn down almost intact buildings or the simplification of those. That's really maddening me.

Yeah, there are towns comparable to that Alsacian one in Germany too

like Waldenburg

1930

In WW2

Today

Concerning Strassbourg, I think the closest would be Erfurt in the East and Bamberg in the West, which both have done a good job

At least Vienna still looks nice. Most of the city looks identical to its pre-WW2 layout.

I love this thread so much!, It's so hurtful to see that patrimonial architecture devastated, Germany is such a beautiful country and I admire the strenght they had to reemerge from those horrible things that happened.

Thank you for those Trier pics! It's really rare to see pics/old pics of Trier in online forums. Even though it's Germany's oldest city, with a small but very beautiful Altstadt (old city centre) and of course it's several(!!) Unesco World Heritage sites, it's very often overlooked (by Germans). In summer and around Christmas the city is packed with foreign tourists though.
One thing I can NEVER EVER forgive the city, is that they demolished a beautiful and grand Belle Epoque hotel on the opposite of the Porta Nigra in the late 60ies. Now we have a large, ugly, boxy 60ies building sitting there amidst the well preserved 19th century cityscape...
