Keeping A Roof Overhead

Typisches Straßenbild in Ostheim, einem Teil von Stuttgart-Ost. Alte, zum Teil liebevoll restaurierte Häuser, gibt es hier noch.
A typical street scene in Ostheim, a part of the Eastern Stuttgart. There are still many old and lovingly refurbished houses.
Ostheim wurde als eine Arbeitersiedlung gegründet. Preiswerte Wohungen für die arbeitende Klasse war das Ziel.

I am glad they have kept these buildings in good shape. Looks like a nice area to live.

Please excuse my ignorance, but do you refer to "east" Germany?

This looks like a nice area...and I can see it's been refurbished. I like the cobblestone streets, too, but I'll bet they make a racket when you drive over them.

It would be great to have plenty of time to wander aimlessly in these historic streets. I would surely get lost if I had to remember which road I came from, though, with such a crazy intersection!:)
