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?

Indeed, along with the likes of Nürnberg, Hildesheim, Braunschweig, Kassel, Cologne, Dresden and old Berlin, Frankfurt is the hardest loss when it comes to German old towns.

a lot, more than necessary, but that's old german tradition.

seriously.

I made a thread for that, some years ago. German langugage only
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ght=schleifung

but it is a sad fact, that the BRD-pricks destroyed alot of buildings or war-ruins, which could have been reconstructed, for their ugly 1950's-shitty-buildings.

altough the allied bombs and the war in whole destroyed a lot, i am sure millions of the war-ruins could have been reconstructed. But people need homes after the war as fast as possible.

Look at this. Shows the german capital shortly after the war. It looks terrible, but most of the walls are still standing. If you think of the hundreds bombings of Berlin and the Battle of Berlin, one of the cruelst ww2-battle, it's impressive that so much buildings did not collapse. Some have even still their roofs. Ok, to be fair, Berlin most consited of 19th century stone buildings. Stone doesn't bunr as good as timberd or half-timbered houses.

But on the other hand, there were german cities which got reconstructed in his old style.

That's probably the main point. Millions had been bombed out and 12 million Germans from what was to become Poland had to find new homes as well. So it's no surprise to see that many people were more concerned about finding new homes rather than reconstructing these beautiful buildings faithfully.

Potsdam in AgfaColor, 1933:



Some buildings still exist, others were destroyed in WW2 or removed by the Commies.

Could you add more old photos from Berlin?

Pre-war Berlin was beautiful, but today it's still looks fantastic. In Berlin you have still old districts with many buildings from XIX/XX c. and really good-looking Mitte with fantastic modern-urban-architecture.

What major cities are you talking about? Aside from Munich, I don't think there were too many larger cities that were reconstructed faithfully...and that's after all where most refugees probably went.

For example Nürnberg. Yes, the details of the buildings were left out. But they builed on the old fudaments. Unlike other german cities, were the while streets, blocks vere vanished and desigend, created new.

Great video. Finally I can see the Schauspielhaus and the Heilig-Geist-Kirche in color; the current "reconstruction" of that church is just horrendous.
