Zittau, Marstall


(akpool.de)

I saw two pictures of this building inside the local Goethe-Institut, including one that shows its current "restored" appearance. It doesn't look that good.

Berlin, the Kolonialmuseum



(bildindex.de)

The structure is gone, of course, as you can read below. In the last picture, there is a church-like building to the right, does anyone recognize it?

The imperial Berlin had six panorama rotundas.
None of them is preserved.

^ They should have gone for more appealing lattice windows and a friendlier paintjob, some beige shade would have been appropriate.

I also included cities which were German back then but are now located in other countries. Anyway, enjoy these pics

Stuttgart's old market square was IMO one of Germany's most beautiful.

What they saw fit to "replace" it with is enough to make the vomit rise

And Why not to make a bold move like Dresde ( In an another scale ) and reconstruc the front of the buildings, in the old style ??. In German Post War reconstructions should have been some basic laws or rules to preven such a lose of heritage, and is not just the need of a quick rebuild of the cities it´s not that, is the style of the reconstruction. European cities should preserve the differents parts of their history and city centers are the older ones. Let´s see a new little Dresde in many German city center !!. just my opinion.

Dresden is not a full reconstruction project. As you can see in the Neumarkt thread, some structures are built with a modernist, sometimes undesirable appearance.

This is true.

But the Dresden effort is clearly superior to that taking place elsewhere.

Clearly.

Faint praise perhaps, but a demonstratively valid accolade nonetheless.

Yes...a reconstruction of the Marktplatz and the old town hall would be a really good thing for Stuttgart! I think a huge part of the old townhall even still exists as you can see here.

^ Awesome! It appears to come from a NatGeo series with many more pictures, which can be found in this album: Changing Berlin - 1937


The description for the above view of the cityscape:
>> "BERLIN, WITH MORE THAN 4,200,000 INHABITANTS, IS THE WORLD'S FOURTH LARGEST CITY
Only New York, London, and Tokyo exceed the German capital in population. Though mentioned in history as early as 1237, Berlin is essentially a city of modern times, having grown enormously in the past century. In the distance stretches Unter den Linden, with its old trees, since destroyed. At the right appears the Cathedral; at the left the Schloss, former palace of the Prussian kings, now a museum."
Agfacolor Plate by Hans Hildenbrand

(This historic photograph is from a National Geographic article in the February 1937 issue titled "Changing Berlin". It offers a fascinating look at Berlin, Germany, a few years before the start of World War II.) <<

Berlin was probably the most beautiful city in the world. A real shame.

With a few reconstructions these cities look great. Are they going to reconstruct the biggest part between the Dom and the Roemer or will the newly built buildings be semi-reconstructions/modernist buildings?

Frankfurt am Main
A few pictures of the Altstadt and surroundings

Peterskirche


Neue Synagoge


The Mainand the Altstadt


Somewhere (?) in the Altstadt


Roemer


Große Fischergasse


Großer Kornmarkt


Judengasse


View from the tower of the Frankfurter KaiserDom to the Roemer


Great view of the Frankfurter Altstadt: http://i53.************/2itlx54.jpg ....
Just wish it all just stood there like there happened nothing for centuries without any big war or something...

Not the biggest part, sadly... but still, a few major buildings will be reconstructed.

I believe most of them or at least the walls are originals. I've looked at historical imagery showing Berlin.

lastly, those ones in Frankfurt are outside of the main mid eval town center.
