    This one is a memorial of the Jews cemetery (a kind of cemetery museum). It's just right next to the Brandenburger Tor (Berlin gate), few hundred meters from the previous building (Reichstag Bundestag / parlemen building).

    This one is not architecture from Nazi era, but it is also quite historical. The remaining of the paralel Berlin wall:

    I love this one, it's very beautiful to me. Under the bridge, on the side of Berlin hauptbahnhof (Berlin central station). Not sure though, when was it built:

    Oh, I've just noticed that the title of this thread is slightly changing.


    Yea, the building is quite old and beautiful. If you like old romantic building, you should visit Trier, it's an old but pretty city.

    Nazi architecture seemed excessively grandiose and impersonal, much like the furer himself.

    Much of the German culture at the time was focused around this quazi-philosophy that Humanity had conquered and became greater than nature.

    The mix of natural-supremacy and modern efficiency was the architectural motto...so it seems.

    However...I personally believe that artisanship (of any kind) supersedes the shallow notions of the time. The German philosophy was truly great, and truly Greek in many aspects.

    Thanks for sharing your pics. That's a spectacular picture of the Thingplatz! I teach history here in Peking and created a site using the pics I took of Nazi architecture when I travelled around Germany if you're interested at "Traces of Evil"

    I agree, except that the flags are actually left-wing.
