it looks like in the cases of Germany and Poland, there is still so much authentic beauty in smaller towns. someone could make a business taking people on tours of these cute mittel european towns.

Not cities but Gordes and Les-Baux-de-Provence in France are beautiful medieval communes.

I love timber-framed buildings, secular Medieval architecture is incredible. For instance (this can now be found in Victoria and Albert Museum) -

A lot of them are not fully real. They have been later enhanced.

All the Baroque buildings in some of the towns shown are an easy give away that the cities are not really medieval.

90% of the city was destroyed during the WW2, but it was faithfully rebuilt.

So you can't really say it's "well-preserved"?

I agree that Gdansk shouldn't be listed here, because it's not well-preserved medieval city. And that's why I wrote that city was destroyed during the war and then reconstructed.
