Görlitz Things to Do

    St.Peter and Paul

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St.Peter and Paul is located directly next to the river Neisse on a small hill overlooking the river. You've got a good view over Zgorzelec from here.
    St.Peter and Paul is famous for its organ, so if you're lucky and hear it, go in and listen!

    Karstadt shopping centre in G��rlitz

    by King_Golo Written Aug 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Görlitz is Germany's only city that has preserved a beautiful art nouveau style shopping center from the early 20th century. It's located at Marienplatz and doesn't look too impressive from the outside - not comparable with other art nouveau gems to be found in Prague or Darmstadt. The inside, however, is great! There's a wonderful glass roof and a sweeping staircase.

    Justitia in front of G��rlitz's townhall

    Görlitz's centre features some wonderful old houses, many of them located at the Oberer Markt (Upper Market Square). The lower market with the impressive houses around the townhall is beautiful, too, and should not be missed.

    There are trains from Gorlitz to Wroclaw every two hours in the day time. The trip takes just around 3 hours and brings you through some nice landscapes.

    The trip costs 24 Zloty when bought onboard, and a whopping €15 if bought on the trainstation i Gorlitz (thats about double the price!).

    There are hourly trains to Cottbus operated by the LausitzBahn. The trip to Cottbus takes 1 hour 20 min. (approximately).
    Inside the trains it is possible to buy coffee, tea, and a variety of sodas and candy.

    The trainstation in Gorlitz is an old building with several shops and travel info in the main hall. If you are taking the a train to/from Poland this is also here that you will probably shift trains.
    The station is serviced by the Lausitzbahn and connections are available to Cottbus, Dresden, Leipzig (there are off course more connections than those mentioned here, but these are the most frequent ones).

    Don't ask me, why these fellows have placed a cow on their balcony, but I thought it to be a nice picture...
    Admirable at Marienplatz opposite the shopping center

    The German-Polish border in G��rlitz

    by King_Golo Written Aug 23, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Görlitz is actually a two-parts city. The other part of the city belongs to Poland and is called Zgorzelec. If you have your passport or ID with you, it should be no problem to visit Zgorzelec as well - that is, unless you need a visa. There are some nice areas, too, although it's not nearly as interesting as Görlitz.
    The border can be crossed on two bridges over river Neisse.
