Actually I looked at the first entry on this thread started by Wolfpaw and in it he asked people to submit their own photos of reconstructions/restorations of buildings. I stand corrected.

After 1945 the remains of the original Knochenhaueramtshaus were cleared away and a modern hotel was built on the site. In 1987 the hotel was demolished and a replica of the Amtshaus was constructed on its original site using the original plans

What's with all these funny modern paintings under the overhang?

Vianden Castle in Luxembourg has been substantially reconstructed on at least two occasions in its history. It was restored from ruins in the 19th century but reduced to a more ruinous state than previously when a battle was fough there during WWII.
Today:

Before the 19th century restoration.

In about 1944:


It was restored after war damage in the 1960s.

Two historical building that I know of were subject to later reconstruction after their components were discovered, the buildings having been dismantled and the stones used as in-fill for other structures.

One (since the 'in Europe' stipulatiuon seems to have fallen by the wayside) is the white chapel of Senusret I, in Egypt...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Chapel

The other is the shrine of Athena Nike, the little temple on the corner of the Acropolis.


This had been dismantled by the Turks and its stones used in a wall around the Acropolis, where they were found and re-assembled by Danish architect-archaeologists. There has been more recent reconstruction work, including recreating part of the triangular pediment. The bright white stones visible here are new.

One by one, Germany is reconstructing it's lost royal palaces. Herrenhausen is the newest addition.

The Herrenhausen gardens before reconstruction, lying "headless".

The Red Chapel of Hatshepsut is another Egyptian shrine that was dismantled and used for infill elsewhere in ancient times. It was reconstructed from its blocks more recently. Not sure how this was accomplished as it's like a large 3d jigsaw puzzle with half the pieces missing and no picture to go by...

Thats not the german landscape. Thats a palace garden!

Palm trees as part of parks around palace buildings are very common. Hence the existence of so many orangeries at germans castles etc...

I don't like those palm trees. Makes the Palace look like some nouveau-riche mansion in California.

Are you guys serious?! There are palm trees in the Herrenhausen gardens since the 18th century. It's perfectly normal for a baroque garden in Western/Northern/Central Europe to have palm trees, oranges or other plants from the south. That's why each self respecting baroque residence also has an orangerie, where these plants stay during the winter.

That's still pretty weird, although those other ones are much smaller.
