Görlitz Things to Do

  • Organ music in St. Peter and Paul

    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!

  • Shopping in an art nouveau building

    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...

  • Beautiful Houses

    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.

Görlitz Off The Beaten Path

  • Look, there's a... cow?!?

    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

  • Cross the border

    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...
