Schloss Schwedt in Schwedt, Brandenburg. Largely destroyed in WW2, remains removed by the German Commies between 1962 and 1969, which was at least partly ideological motivated since the castle was owned by the Prussian Hohenzollerns.

It was really ugly, it's a good thing it was demolished...

Yeah sure, what an ugly beast. We should be glad that Schwedt is full of beautiful commieblocks and GDR rowhouses now, instead of this baroque monstrosity.

Ignore that fatuous philistine.

It reminds me of Schloss Bellevue in Berlin.

Beautiful palace, such a shame it got destroyed. Are there any plans to have it rebuilt?

No. Schwedt is a dying town full of Commie blocks on the Polish border. No one will invest anything there.

But once it died it actually might be a great resort for the super rich which will then reconstruct the castle as their residence.

Wow, calm down, no need to mock me, when did I say I want commie blocks instead? I just think that particular building was too grey and dull, but apologies if I hurt someone's feelings...

Which is a completely different thing. It's ridiculous to say something like that.

Of course it could have needed a paintjob, which would have been done nowadays anyway. But demolishing it because of the color? Jeez.
Avoid postings like that please, they're only causing harm and anger.

Ok, Im so sorry if my own opinion hurt someone or made them angry. Why can't I say my opinion? The only one making a big deal is you... But let's forget this little incident ever happened, from now on, let's be friends.

It's not about hurting anyone, it was just a foolish remark you made.

Case closed.

Sure, it was foolish of me to say it should've been demolished but I still it's too grey and dull. But whatever, as you said, Case closed!

Well, pre-war Germany was pretty grey and dull. I'm from former Commie-Germany, and our towns turned colorful only in the 90s.
Dresdens Frauenkirche in the 30s:

But we'd have to add that there were regional differences, with different types of pretty colourful towns in many regions. In addition, there were huge efforts to renovate many of Germany's old towns in the 30s. But it's true the country became far more colourful (esp. East Germany) in recent years.

By the way, it's a fact that old color photos were not totally faithful regarding the color, in comparison to modern pics.

That's another issue indeed. Aging of the material also plays a role, making it look more sepia with time passing by.
