In the northern half of the old town, the amount of historical architectrue that survived the war is close to zero, witht he exception of some churches. The streets north of Altstadtmarkt have more or less completely been rebuilt in post-war architecture. These streets once were the home of rich merchants who owned splendid renaissance houses. In Gördelinger Straße some portals of these houses have been saved from the rubble and put up among the new buildings.
