There actually is, but Tolbert is a bit overzealous showcasing literally every German town and so it all blurs together, looking fairly similar to laymen.

Titus-Pollo did a great job depicting only the very distinct architecture styles of France. I will be trying to do the same for Germany, even though Germany can't quite match France in this regard. France has the most diversity in Europe by far.

People, how can you say Germany is diverse in architecture? Lol, maybe now, after the war, but in general, Germany looks just so similar.

Romania,
West regions influenced by central european culture,
East regions, influenced by orthodox-russian neo-classicism,
saxon cities in Transylvnaia , commie cities everywhere,
Bucharest is like a communist paris influenced by neo-romanian style,
Dobrogea balkanic feelings, mosques and oriental influences.

Belgium PART 1

All differences are placed within 100km from eachother.
I will take examples of towns people from outside Belgium are usually not known with.

Examples of historic styles West of Brussels:
Main cities in this style: Bruges and Ghent

Lissewege

Veurne
The marketplace of Veurne, Belgium ( Unesco world heritage) by Frans Sellies, on Flickr

Damme
Damme by Emile Deguise, on Flickr


East Of Brussels:
Main cities in this style: Luik (BE), Namur (BE) and Maastricht (NL)

Sint-Truiden:



De Stadt van Luijck, Sint-Truiden by ArcheoNet Vlaanderen, on Flickr

Tongeren:

North of Brussels
Main cities in this style: Antwerp

Mechelen:

Belgium Part 2

South of Samber adn Meuse river the architecturel landcape changes drastically. The use of brick and lime stones wich can be seen in Northern part (Flanders and Northern Wallonia) is replaced by the use of nature stone.
There are no big cities build in this style.

To the first part of your post, please see what I wrote on the previous page, also what Tiaren said. I think you can just compare three small cities from different parts of Germany to realize that it does indeed have a lot of architectural variety: Landshut in Bavaria, Celle in Lower Saxony and Stralsund in the Hanseatic North.

As for Romania, I agree there is a lot of diversity there; in particular, I think one might differentiate the late 19th/early 20th century Austro-Hungarian architecture of Cluj, Oradea or Timisoara, the late medieval/renaissance German architecture of Sibiu and Brasov and the ecletic, mix of Paris-neo-Romanian and communist of Bucharest and some other major cities in Wallachia/Moldavia.

I think there is an argument to be made that smaller countries might have proportionally greater diversity than bigger countries such as France or Germany, even if they only have two or three distinct styles. Switzerland is an obvious example, Zurich feels a world apart from Geneva, which in turn is so different from Lugano, although I am sure language also contributes to the general impression. Romania is another example, and then so is Belgium (as you can see in joshsam's really nice pictures), with the difference between the historical Flanders (i.e. Brugge and Gent), Brabant, i.e. Antwerp and Brussels (which retains its origins mostly in the Grote Markt), Liege and then the rest of Wallonian territories such as Hainaut with Mons.

Yeah you have a point here. I think i got a bit carried away with my last two posts. I was a bit overwhealmed by the beauty of those cities I will reduce them a bit, and i will get more essentially with my next posts!

Danzig
https://brylla-reisen.de/files/bryll...angermarkt.jpg

Well, this is not the best example of the differentiation of German urban architecture. Most of the front and left flanks were built after 1946. The houses used plasters and baroque details to make them more "Polish" They were supposed to resemble Danzig appearance when it belonged to the Kingdom of Poland and although patricians spoke German, the city was politically part of the Polish Kingdom. It would be equally useful to point out Danzig as an example of the differentiation of the architecture of Polish cities. The Breslau and Hirschberg markets are also largely Polish reconstruction or a historical creation that rather reminisces more or less the earlier architecture.
But, the thread is generally very interesting

stop trolling, Gdansk/Danzig originates its historical core from Hanseatic times and was German as such for around 10% of its time on map of Europe.
