Often considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Germany, Görlitz is a visual treat for its visitors. There are over 3,500 well-preserved architectural monuments which span over 500 years including fortifications, theaters, and grand old churches. The variety in architectural styles is enough to excite any visitor, but what can be found inside is even more spectacular. For example, the late Gothic church, St. Peters, has two steeples and an 18th century organ, while the Gorlitz Museum of Cultural History has paintings which date back to the 17th century.
Unsurprisingly, Görlitz is a favorite filming location amongst movie directors who are drawn to the various beautiful backgrounds. Film-buff visitors will love visiting the shooting sites of famous movies such as Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
