  The Tin Can
by Leipzig

The most impressive new building at Bruehl is the so called Blechbüchse ("Tin Can"), a shopping mall built in 1966-68. It was the modernst shopping mall in the GDR.
It stands on the place where Richard Wagner was born. The old building was bombed out in World War Two and only the facade remained. The facade is still there but below the tinny curtain.

Address: Brühl
