Great Thread. I enjoyed every single set of pictures. The last ones of Munich are again well made and are great PR for the city. I have yet to visit it, but your pix let it climb a lot of steps on my list of places to see

Also your pix of Dresden and Hamburg convinced me to go there again soon.

Cheers.

I just discovered this thread and watched through all of the photos! I haven't really been to many German cities and you have definitely given me an idea on what cities to visit Love the amount and quality of the photos, by the way!

Ok, but in this list you can find at least five cities which don't deserve to be mentioned in the top 10

Yes and no. Surfing on the Eisbach has a tradition of more than 30 years. However, about 15 years ago they sunk some railway sleepers to create the "standing" wave you can see today and which allows 24/7 sufing on 365 days of the year. There's a documentary called "Keep surfing" abouth the scene there.

I don't know whether you could call this a German ideal. The simple fact is that all the old buildings looked brand new at some point. Of course a reconstruction looks odd to someone used to buildings influenced by hundreds of years of erosion, even if it is carried out in traditional building methods (such as the Frauenkirche). However, it would probably be much more expensive and risky to purposely rebuild a structure that it looks aged. And neither would it be sustainable, I suppose.
