^I believe Vera may have referred to Rottenburg am Neckar, which is in Baden-Wurttemberg, not Rothenburg, which is in Bavaria.

Anyway, Rothenburg (in Bavaria) looks so beautiful despite being reconstructed!

Ah yes, my mistake. I should have realized he was talking about the one in BW, especially because I lived so close to it for almost 5 years!

Yes Rothenburg was 40% destroyed, approximately due to cloud cover over the primary target. But it was the more modern part that was hit, the really old bits are still as they were back in the 1700s at least. Even back in the 1800s they had a group looking to preserve the city. Its an incredible place, well worth a visit. Unless you really know to look for the signs, you wouldn't know the eastern half is reconstructed.

Cool thread, surprised nobody mentioned Celle though. Certainly not one of the biggest cities but if we are already mentioning Tübingen and Quedlinburg might as well take our hats off for this intact jewel: kept intact because the British wanted to make it a center of the part of Germany they were to occupy after the war.
