1. What is it with Germans intentionally making their towns ugly? Our town added a similar concrete block in front of our beautiful, sleepy castle. Ruined it for me forever. When my parents built their house 40 years ago, they had to follow extremely strict rules as to what could be built, roof pitch, color etc. Now, seemingly everything goes, no matter how laughable. I am squarely with you on this one!

    1. Right Karin? The rules are still strict and make no sense at all. Not everything goes at all but the people who decide what goes and what doesn’t apparently have a totally different taste

    1. Lol I had to say it again I guess

  2. Ugh! I can go you one better. Here is our City Hall built about 15 years ago in Fresno, CA. It is a montrosity! http://www.city-data.com/picfilesv/picv18135.php. Not only is it ugly, when they built it they didn’t realize all the old office furniture didn’t fit and they hadn’t budgeted for new! It can also be seen in the movie The Puppet Masters as a futuristic government building.

    It’s right next to a historic train depot…why couldn’t they have worked on a theme to blend the two?

    1. Oh wow yes that’s huge. I still think the prison city hall is worse LOL

    Can I get a link to where you got the dress? I love it.
    I used to live in Heidelberg and luckily everything was very old, not having sustained much damage back in the ’40’s. Some towns had some pretty quirky things though. I loved Germany!

    1. Yes Heidelberg is beautiful. I have a post about it too when I visited with my kiddos. I linked the dress when you click on the photo. I hope it works 😉

  4. Lohr is such a lovely village, One of my favorites to go wandering around in. I am sorry they made such a bad choice in “art”. As my mother often quoted, “A fool and their money is soon parted.”
