German towns and cities used to look like they came straight out of a fairytale! So depressing.

Hi.

Do You have some old pictures of a interior of Cologne's cathedral. I have been there recently and as I'm impressed by the size of it (insiade and out) but I'm little disappointed with its interior decor. That is why I'm interested whether it was heavily destroyed during WWII just like St. Mary in Gdansk and how did it look like?

Nuremberg is probably the biggest loss. If you don't know old pictures you would think the "reconstructed" old town is nice, but just look at these pictures.. all these details... the roofs, the gables, the turrets, the balustrades... could be straight from Grimm's fairy tales:

don't forget Berlin!

But there are still some germs left.

Look at Erfurt, Leipzig or Heidelberg. Bamberg or Ettenheim
