Isn't Metz the archetype of Wilhelminian architecture ? Even in France, we seldom see anything from Metz.

Not sure. But Strasbourg's Neustadt is famous for being the Wilhelminian district in that area.

I remember reading something about that Church. I guess back then Romanesque architecture was regarded as more "German" than Gothic.

By the by, the quoted building (the Kaiserpalast in Dresden) was build in the year of 1895, at "Pirnaischer Platz" (=square).

Another postcard of this building within its context:


Taken from this Dresden-Wiki




To attract the view on Berlin again - the Berliner Dom (=cathedral) back in the past:



Compare: Nowadays



As you may obviously spot, it looks quite different now. They reconstructed the dome in a simplified way, as well as the spires/lanterns. Currently the cross on top is demounted due to some renovation works. As suggested by some architecture friends/organizations this would be a great chance to reconstruct the whole dome with the towers, since they also have to be renovated soon.
But, times again, there seems to be no chance for such a project - the cathedral is a building of the 19th century


An additional image to show the condition in 1964 - after the heavy bombing in WW2 they've only built an auxiliary dome:



And again, nowadays. A quite sad sight without the cross on the cupola...
Its so ridiculous this mental problems all those German politics have now a days about reconstructing turn of the century buildings...whats their problem ???

The Berlin Dom its such a beautiful landmark, and its not complete with this super ugly comunistic endings, NOW WAS THE BEST CHANCE TO REMAKE IT LIKE THE ORIGINAL AND LET IT SHINE AGAIN LIKE IN THE PAST !!

I am sure one day will be done, but we will have to wait for a new generation, because the one now on charge has too many problems in the head with the past !!!!

I was asked yesterday, how did Poland managed to reconstruct German cities, a guy is involved in Dresden's Old Market rebuilding, he was so surprised that Poles rebuilt those cities thanks to old paintings.

There are some nice pieces of German architecture in Poznań (Posen), which belonged to Prussia later Germany from 1793 to 1918. Most of the buildings in the pictures below were built in that period.


Down on the left the opera house, next to it a today's university faculty and down the imperial castle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperia...in_Pozna%C5%84

Sad to see. These cities were beautiful. I can't imagine that this happened to "one of my cities". Places like Cologne and Frankfurt have so little preserved. Ofcourse they would never looked like these cards no matter what.

Luckily my 1st city Amsterdam is relatively well preserved. Barcelona lost lots of great buildings thanks to first the Spanish invasion in the 18th century and then the anarchist revolts and the civil war however.

As you can see not everything was lost (or rather I should say - it was lost but rebuilded). However it's not 'Germany' anymore
...at least for now
