St. Martin Garrison Church

Dresden, Germany

The St. Martin garrison church of Dresden was the garrison church of Albertstadt, which had been created as a military town for much of the Saxon army. The church, built between 1893 and 1900, is divided into two separate church halls for the Protestant and Catholic denominations, of which since 1945 only the Catholic part is used in a sacred way.

I can not believe this church is not more talked about. It is absolutely breathtaking. Has such a uniqueness to it that isn't seen often.

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
