This is an interesting website showing the remains of the Third Reich. It is surprising to see that while the obvious megalomaniac buidling projects where demolished, a lot adminstrative buildings of those days are still in use today.

..... I had discovered that site a while ago myself. It is indeed a very interesting site to visit.

I was especially impressed by those very heavily built above-ground air raid shelter towers with tall conical tops designed to deflect falling bombs.

Interesting.

FWIW, I was quartered in the Lichterfelde ... I mean, Andrews Barracks in the late 1970s. Mostly just a shabby old building, though some of the more high-strung folks would report "odd feelings" or even ghosts (I never saw one).

I had a basement room, and used to wonder if it was put to any special purpose during the Night of the Long Knives.

Cool site. I stayed at the Platterhof/General Walker Hotel with my family when I was a kid, visiting Berchtesgaden, Garmisch, and Salzburg. I didn't know they tore it down. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Bah, that castle up there in Heidelberg was blown up by the french in the 17th century, as were many others shortly before the 30 years war. A real shame.
