The most easterly city in Germany, the picturesque community of Görlitz is known as Saxony’s most magical town – with impressive period architecture, quaint cobblestone streets, and a fascinating history. A footbridge across the Neisse River takes visitors right into the Polish town of Zgorzelec, making a stay at a hostel or hotel in Görlitz an especially unique experience. The city has recently enjoyed a rise in tourism, and has become a popular destination with tourists both local and abroad.

After miraculously escaping the destruction of World War II, Görlitz has preserved more than 4000 heritage buildings, and visitors here can experience an introduction to a wide variety of traditional architectural style – from the Renaissance all the way up to the 19th century. These monuments span more than 500 years, and many have been lovingly restored more recently to add a bit of color to the notably grey community.

In fact, the historical beauty of this town has made it the backdrop for many Hollywood movies, including Inglourious Basterds, The Book Thief, The Reader, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. This City of Culture is a perfect destination for anyone interested in studying the medieval heritage of the region, or anyone who wants to experience a slice of life in a charming German town.

With plenty of museums and cultural centres to visit, guests of hostels and hotels in Görlitz can explore a variety of interesting attractions. Muskauer Park, Kulturinsel Einsiedel family fun park, and the Kleinwelka zoo and adventure park are some of the most popular destinations here, but there is plenty more to see during a stay here.

There is some public transportation here, including international connections into Poland. With bus service, rail service, and a tramway, there are several options for tourists looking to get to a local hotel or hostel from the airport in Berlin.
