This Is What Germany Looked Like Before World War I, Unbelievable!

Germany has always been a beautiful nation. It is a frequent tourist attraction because of the combination of nice weather, exquisite buildings, and cultural wealth.

Thankfully, one large book extensively made a collection of old Germany, before the conflicts happened and ruined such a dreamy location. Thanks to a process of putting some colors in the black and white images, here is what Germany looked like before man decided to wage war against each other.

The Beautiful 1900

The Beautiful 1900

This is just one of the many dazzling photos of Germany back in 1900. 30 years later, the whole nation would be put under the control of the second Reich as war and industrialization were on their way. In this photo is a grand palace located Mecklenburg, Germany.

Unlike the hustle and bustle of today's society, Germany in 1900 seemed to promise a more wonderful time despite the lack of technology we have today. This is the coast of Westerland, Germany.

The book that has all of these gorgeous images was published by Taschen and can be bought for 135 Euros. As you might have already guessed, a commendable coloring process was done to give life to these otherwise black and white images. This is the Castle of Sigmaringen.

It was a slower life back then. Germany also did not have cars at the time. As seen here in the old Wernigerode Town Hall, the area is spacious and evokes a sense of relaxation.

The Great Bridge

The Great Bridge

This fantastic bridge that almost seems unreal because of its sheer beauty is called the Baste Bridge. It was constructed way back in the 1850s to replace a wooden version. Thus, the bridge is a proof that Germany was undergoing industrialization.

Here, you can see the Frederick Bridge in front of the grandiose cathedral of Berlin. At the lower left portion, you can see the barges carry products on the river Spree.

The Old Kitchen Of Germany

Before there were any electricity and all the modern cooking tools that we take for granted today, there were beautiful kitchen spaces like this in Germany.

People might say that it's just a matter of nostalgia, but if they saw this, they would probably change their minds about loving old Germany just for the sake of history.

So, did you enjoy the photos of Germany back in 1900? If you do, then maybe we should stay away from wars. If the two World Wars did not happen, we might still have these beauties around together with our wonderful modern technology.
