Ypres was destroyed during WW1. After the war the town
was extensively rebuilt using money paid by Germany in
reparations, with the main square, including the Cloth
Hall and town hall, being rebuilt as close to the original
designs as possible. This was possible due to detailed
plans being recorded in the late 19th century.
Too far away to visit.
