People, beware. Stop the moral discussion right now.
There are other places to discuss such issues, like the international skybar. Go there if you feel like discussing it. Everyone who continues this here will get an infraction.

This thread is dedicated to undestroyed German cities and heritage, so spare your anger about things that happened to your countries almost 7 decades ago. Back to the photos. Thanks.

erbse is right, this thread is not for this type of discussion.
Please respect the intent of the thread.

Gorlitz, once on both sides of the Oder River, narrowly made it through the war almost untouched. It suffers today from a very poor economy and low employment. The first photo shows the contrast between worn and renovated.

Click on my "Visit Upper Lusatia" link below. Many pics of Görlitz and other towns and villages in the region, all untouched by the war.

...and a few more Gorlitz photos that nicely demonstrate the preserved look for former times.

Some nice shots, Görlitz is a true gem. Since you didn't credit 'em - did you take those?

You have to give a source if you post photos. Thanks.

Stunning! Just absolutely fantastic, i didn't know there were still well preserved/non-reconstructed classic towns in Germany. You gotta love the feeling of living in such an amazing place like that! Btw, the round building reminds me of the extinct Haus Vaterland in Berlin.

Wismar was hit by the war, but most of the town luckily survived.







I will add more pics later in my thread about the baltic coast (see my signature).

Let us make a list I give a start, everyone is free to add other cities. Hopefully, we will have a complete list eventually!

German cities that were not bombed

Criteria:
1. The city has more than 50 000 inhabitants nowadays
2. Cities that suffered bombings on railways or industries outside the city center are classified as "not bombed", since the Altstadt was not bombed.
3. Cities that were bombed, but lost <5% of their buildings, are also listed below.

List:


Baden-Baden



Bamberg



Görlitz



Göttingen



Halle



Kempten



Konstanz



Landshut



Lüneburg



Oldenburg



Passau



Regensburg



Rosenheim



Schwerin



Speyer



Tübingen



Zwickau



Add more!
