Interesting Old Building in Traben Trarbach

I love history and architecture, and Traben Trarbach has more than its fair share of amazing buildings and interesting hidden gems.

This rather ecclesiastical looking window was clearly part of something grander but is now seems to be part of a sculptor’s workshop. I wish he would spend a bit of time renovating this fantastic piece of history.

has been demolished and replaced with this:

The original building could surely have been saved and converted into some interesting apartments or offices with bags of charm and character, but now we will end up with sterile boxes that the Germans seem to be so fond of nowadays.
