^ It was mainly done in 1981 (started in January).

Since this year, parts of the bridge are rebuilt according to its historical predecessor, especially the width. I'm not sure if they intend to rebuild the statues or anything, would be really cool of course.

German Wiki article about the Friedrichsbrücke: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrichsbr%C3%BCcke


Interestingly, it had a precursor bridge made of cast iron. But this one turned out too small for the growing number and size of ships crossing the river Spree there. The Friedrichsbrücke and Alte Börse (old Stock Exchange) in 1886:

As long as i know this had been the "Friedrichstadtpassagen" ?!

but i dont see many resemblance with the building in Rotterdam. The ornamentation, the scale an so on doesnt match. Myabe the massing has some parallels. You should take a closer look.
A lot of people in here seem to se resemblances where cant find them. Sometimes i ask myself if thy use thier eyes at all bevor guessing something...

The name of the requested shopping gallery is Kaisergalerie.


It was magnificent.

^It was bombed during WW2. Nowadays a pretty decent postmodern GDR hotel sits on its site. The Westin Grand Berlin (formerly: Interhotel Grand Hotel Berlin).

Nah, looks a bit smaller; more like the Galeries St. Hubert in Brussels.

Well, I guess even the gallery of the Wertheim that was turned into the Kunsthaus Tacheles in 1990 was/is probably bigger than the Kaisergalerie, isn't it?

Not even close. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is way more impressive and representative. From the pics it looks like the Kaisergallerie was a lot darker than the Galleria. Not to speak of the size of the entrances.

Regarding Münster: It's not a depressing side today. The rebuilding wasn't perfect by any means, but pretty good. Actually it was the best in West Germany. It's a very livable and good looking city again.

Sure, cities and civilians must be destroyed. That is what the British call civilized. British declare war on Germany - Germans only get what they deserve

Beautiful thread here - such a pity so many cities and buildings have changed since then.
I am just not totally happy with this threads title. Isnt there - at least valid for many cities in Germany - a big difference between the time of "the end of 19th century" and the time "before WWII"? Modernism and zeitgeist already started to change the cities faces in the 1920s and 30s. I think even without WWII many of the posted sites would look totally different nowadays.
On the other hand I totally agree - WWII almost totally erased many of the wonderful German cities that would have survived keeping their original faces if they wouldnt have been bombed.
