Some more pics of Görlitz, which not only offers a completely preserved old town but also huge Gründerzeit quarters (late 19th century).

The Bahnhofsstrasse, the street between the train station and the old town, was the most important part of the 19th century expansion of the town. Sadly especially this street is pretty run down, but the city authorities plan the revamp the street completely in the next years. AFAIK the lamps for example will be replaced.

Some houses in side streets are still not restored. Sometimes the turrets on corner houses get reconstructed:

In case you wonder why you don't see more people on the streets: all shops are closed on sunday in Germany, and most people leave the town and go hiking or biking on beautiful says like this:

Yes, and this is only a small part of the much bigger area from the 19th century.

may i ask you very are you from?

you should check out Dresden then when there And Leipzig. Lübeck too And Quedlinburg, haha!

In the South of Germany, the city of Bad Tölz, oh and dont forget Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

In France, Straßburg.

Here you have a list of german cities with historical old towns (inclued rebuiled ones after ww2, too, but also untouched or very little touched by allied bombs)

I´m from Vienna, but as I have relatives in Germany which I visit pretty often, I have already been to most parts of Germany at least for a short visit, but southwestern Germany is the region I know best - in Strasbourg I already was three or four times, in Bad Tölz once. I haven´t visited Rothenburg yet because I always was a bit afraid the city has become too touristic, so I only visited the also very beautiful Dinkelsbühl in this area.

In Eastern Germany, I have only been to Berlin, Potsdam and Erfurt yet but would like to visit Leipzig, Dresden, Magdeburg, Görlitz, Naumburg and Stralsund the next time.
