I added Esslingen and Fürth.

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



Esslingen am Neckar



Fürth



Görlitz



Göttingen



Halle



Kempten



Konstanz



Landshut



Lüneburg



Oldenburg



Passau



Regensburg



Rosenheim



Schwerin



Speyer



Tübingen



Zwickau

Doesn't make a lot of sense. Some cities in Western Germany grew rapidly after WW2, but were tiny before 1900. Rosenheim for example had less than 5.000 inhabitants before industrialization, while some cities in Eastern Germany were 4x bigger at that time, but didn't grew after WW2 and sometimes lost up to 1/3 of their inhabitants after 1989. Their old towns however are still much bigger. Freiberg in Saxony is just one example. Already around 1500 Freiberg (which was the biggest town in Saxony back then) was bigger than Rosenheim around 1870.

So, what would you propose?

Criteria always are more or less arbitrary, but if I would count in all lovely small German towns, the list will be far too extensive. The total surface area of the inner city would be a better criteria, of course, but it is not easy to find those figures for all German cities.

All this has nothing to do with DDR-bashing A wonderful, unspoilt old city in former-BRD is Goslar, but since it has less than 50 000 inhabitants, it is not on the list. Same rules for ganz Deutschland.

Lüneburg was a garnison city from the end of the 19th century. With this in mind, it is even more astonishing that this city has survived the war almost undestroyed. However after the war there were serious considerations to raze down the intact oldd town and replace it with "modern" buildings for a "better living quality". Thanks to the resistance of the inhabitants these plans havent been executed.
In general many towns and cities in Germany (east and west) which survived the war in a rather good condition were victim of the "modernisations" in the 50s-70s.

Really nice. Is the whole city like that? I was thinking that next time I am in Hamburg it could be nice to take a day trip to Stade.
