Indeed, doesn't look very French to me, but much more Italian renaissance style. Thanks for the pics though, nice building.

In Germany Beaux Arts style is very, very rare. There's one pretty prominent example to be found in Dresden though.
The Academy of Arts, by Constantin Lipsius:

The architect Constantin Lipsius had studied a while in Paris and was influenced by Charles Garnier (Opéra Garnier). The german public did not approve of the building in the end. They thought, it was much too ornate and too large.

In Trier (my hometown) which was part of France for some time in the past, there are a few genuinely french buildings to be found by the way. Here's one example of a late baroque town house:

@ Bauchef
Haus zur Trülle and Main Station don't really follow a french style.

Especially Haus zur Trulle is clearly built in a northern Renaissance style, which is actually typical for the architecture in Germany in the late 19th century. Together with Romanesque architecture it was considered very germanic.
And English Art Nouveau is, I'd almost say, non existent. You Probably meant Tudor, which is a Renaissance style too, albeit not this one.

Your first example could really stand exactly like that in Paris though. XD

@ Tiaren:

«Haus zur Trülle» is mostly a mixture with parisian Art Nouveau (below) and French Renaissance (esp. Château Ussé) and some english «Arts and Crafts»: It's «Swiss Mixture». «Eden au Lac» is typical «Belle Epoque» used for Grand Hotels and etc. German Renaissance or Neorenaissance is hardly found in Zurich (for political reasons, Swiss don't hate Germans - they don't like them either). One of the few is this here:

http://************/r/jb2wsk/5

Main Station I just posted of pretending being the little brother of the «Arc de Triomphe».

The old «Trocadero» was this one:

http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...20090909170033

Most used style was Belle Epoque or italian - Swiss do very love Italy.

Yes, Eden au Lac, Tonhalle and Utoschloss are heavily french influenced. That style is called "Beaux Arts". I see french Art Nouveau as well.

But, sorry, the rest isn't! Haus zur Trülle is Renaissance revival but it's northern/germanic Renaissance, not french Renaissance. It has very few similarities with the Chateau you posted. Especially the towers/spires of Haus zur Trülle are distinctively germanic. And when I say germanic I don't just mean "german". Sorry to tell you, but Switzerland is for the most part a germanic country too.
And I do not know, where you have that "small brother of the Arc de Triomphe" from, but have you actually compared the entry gate of the station with Arc de Triomphe? There are all over Europe numerous other triumph arches that look much more similar to Zürich Hauptbahnhof.
Triumph arches are a roman and not french invention by the way and Arc de Triomphe was not the first one.

In fact here in this thread are some more examples of architecture, that IS NOT french. Just because it was built around 1900 doesn't make it "french".
Since when is Neo Byzantine architecture french? Just because of Sacre Coeur?
