fantastic! Though the building in the Quartier III that looks modern should have classical architecture aswell.

^ Absolutely agreed. I can't dare those 'modern' architects, they're bockin it in most cases. I also dunno what such a bland, boring and insignificant building has to do at this beautiful place at all. Germany finally needs the paging from the mad shitty-postwar's-building-sins-proponent-society into a tolerant and open-minded reconstruction-of-old-beauty-society. If u know what I mean

Very nice. I really have to visit Dresden again. When I was there last time the Frauenkirche was still rubble.

Whether modern architects like it or not, older architecture in dresden is becoming more and more popular. This kind of development will spread, and those modern little buildings will probably refacaded later. I personally in my opinion think that older styles are becoming more popular today then they ever were eversince they died out.
I live in a very old neighborhood with alot of woodwork and brick(some stone) victorian houses and they have sooo much character compared to the tall modern glass highrises of downtown.

Quite often the reconstructions actually look much better than the originals:

I am curious, why are they different?

Are these reconstructions about returning these buildings to their original "unspoilt" baroque form, or more about returning them to their pre-war state?

Exactly. During the 19th century some buildings received neo-classicist facades, so the reconstructions are made according to the original designs.

Though I am a fan of the reconstruction of Dresden's Neumarkt, I'd say that the old pics look better; the reconstructions are a bit too "new" right now. But I guess time will do the job. Hopefully in ten years some pieces of paintwork will come off

nope, the destruction of munich was as big as the one of every other big city.....

The difference is, that, while other cities tried out something new, what often failed, munich started the reconstruction directly after the war...

I guess it also depends on what areas were hit. Munich certainly did a much better job of reconstructing its buildings (most of the buildings around the Marienplatz, even though they look nothing like the pre-war buildings, look kind of old and Bavarian) but I'm not sure it suffered the same scale of destruction as for example Cologne.

german wikipedia writes for munich:

Bis Kriegsende wurden durch 73 Luftangriffe die historische Altstadt zu 90%, und die Stadt insgesamt zu 50% zerstört. Schätzungen zu Folge fanden etwa 6.000 Menschen den Tod und etwa 15.000 wurden verletzt. Auch durch Evakuierung und Flucht wurde die Bevölkerungszahl von 824.000 im Jahr 1939 auf 479.000 reduziert.


-90% of the central, old city were destroyed
-50% of the whole town were destroyed.

number of residents declined from 824000 to 479000 with 6000 being killed by air raids.
