Most of all, if they recently visited a city like Paris or those beautifully preserved belgian cities.
It's a problem more German cities have. To bad that they didn't reconstructed the lost buildings (like they did in Poland) instead of rebuild the city in 50s architecture (which by most people is less liked than the more decorated styles or the original buildings.

Anyway. I truly liked this tread. Especially the commentary.

In that regard, Germany is very much like Japan (only there it is even worse). If you have to rebuild destroyed areas in a very short time, aesthetics are the least of your concern. I understand that it is impossible to correct this completely, but I think that it should be possible to restore parts of the city centres (like in Berlin or Dresden).
On the other hand, there is a risk that cities will look fake and kitschy.

Ahh I wouldn't say that..
First of all there are a lot of historic remnants more than you want to make us think of.
Second there are a lot of cities which have torn down their 16th 17th century buildings without a reason.
Paris with it's haussmann architcture is an example. But I'm quite sure some belgian cities could be named as well.
And Cologne has definitely more original historic arcitecture than most of the polish cities for sure.

The Western Europe is so amazing. hope i'll afford the travel across the whole Europe someday in the Future. The church's glamorous. The ordinary buildings have charm, too. All is totally different from the ancient estern architecture. welcome to China to enjoy the acient architecture.

If I'm still walking this earth in a couple of years I hope to visit China. Definitely lots of industry there so you know I'll show up sooner or later :-)

This sounds like Dresden, although I at least appreciate their effort to restore the historical parts..
