Pretty much nothing and the rest was torn down. Or rebuilt later. Long story...

Thanks. Looks MUCH plainer than I expected. Thought it would be wreathed in gothic stone carvings and things like that.

Yes, because Berlin was capital city with circa 4 milion residents of Germany with circa 70 milion residents. Berlin was third largest city in Europe and in first ten in the world.

God, seeing Berlin then and today hurts...
What hurts most: The city wasn't even damaged that much. They purposely ruined much of what was left after WWII.

That reminds me of this project, which was to be built near the Gendarmenmarkt:



This was a prewar project by architect Ludwig Hilberseimer, professor at the Bauhaus school at Dessau.

Berlin, divided between comunist eastern Germany and capitalist western Germany became showcase for both in its eager to appear "succesful and modern", so both sides build a lot of semi-skyscrapers and other buildings of the kind for that matter. They are still tearing down remaining old surviving buildings. A postoffice was recently targeted for demolition as I recall.

No words can describe the overwhelming beauty of pre-war Berlin.

A lover of architecture would likely find the beauty too much to bear.

The ideal city (in terms of architecture).
