Introduction

Atmospheric and perfectly preserved, it’s little wonder the historical town centre of Görlitz was used to film parts of Quentin Tarantino’s InglouriousBasterds. Görlitz was fortunate to emerge from World War II relatively unscathed, and so buildings like the grand City Hall, dating back to the mid-14th century, are still in great condition. Baroque and Renaissance architecture abounds, while the main train station is a good example of art nouveau design.


Foodies who like central European cuisine will be spoilt for choice here; the town’s location right on the border with Poland means there is a hotchpotch of Polish, German, Russian and French influences in the food. Most of the restaurants are around City Hall or Untermarkt, the market square.
