GERMANY'S most beautiful cityscapes

Germany's cities are not famous for they're beauty, as French or Italian cities (for example) are. Our cities suffered alot during WWII, but there are still some gems out there to be discoverd. Gems that maybe even can compare to the beautiful cities elsewhere in the world...?
I hope you don't mind me opening this thread, to bring Germany's most beautiful cities to you. It would be awesome, if others forumers would post pictures of beautiful cityscapes found in Germany too. You are all welcome here.

I'm going to start with some pictures of Dresden. Even after heavy destruction in WWII, one of Germany's most beautiful cities.

Munich, probably Germany's most beautiful big city with a population over 1 million.

Very nice addition!

Wiesbaden really looks great! To foreigners it's mostly unknown, because of Frankfurts enormous presence in Hesse.

@Pegasusbsb27
Thank you very much!
Hopefully more and more people will also post pictures here.

Wow! Germany looks fantastic. I'm in love with Dresden! The rooftop pics of Ruthenburg looks really nice!

I'm afraid Cologne doesn't really count as a beautiful city at all.

But it's gothic cathedral is amazing. Maybe one of the most beautiful out there.

Many medieval gems can be found outside the bigger cities on the countryside among the small- and midsized towns, such as:

Limburg, which is located at the hessian-rhinelandish-border at the Lahn River. Total population: 35,000.







Miltenberg, located in Lower Franconia at the Main River, with a total population of 9,500.




Tübingen in Swabia at the Neckar River with a total population of 85,000.





All pictures taken of Wikipedia.
