Gorlitz might not be a popular German city but is known across the world. This is because it has served as the setting for several Hollywood movies. The city is much laid back and relaxed. I decided, upon recommendation from my friend Chris, who runs Think Maids, to visit Gorlitz. He inspired me to get out more & experience all these amazing places. I found these things that you can do when you are here.
Explore the city
I feel one of the best ways to explore the city is to take a walk. It is better not to make a plan and simply check every place that you come across. As I walked through the old town, I realized that this place has some unbelievably pretty things. You will get to understand why Hollywood is in love with Gorlitz. Everything over here is worth seeing.
Visit the film settings
The city is like a film fest. Any corner you visit, you will realize that a movie had been filmed. If you are lucky enough, you can even be a witness to a movie.
Go to movies
Gorlitz Filmpalast has been inspired by Quentin Tarantino in the movie Inglorious Bastards. It wasn’t shot there but I felt it was a good idea to be stop and movie in there.
Go for a guided tour
While I was walking down the town, it heard the sound of an organ. This led me to St. Paul and St. Peter Church. Here, I came across the popular Sonnenorgel or the sun organ. It had been made by Eugenio Casparini. Sometimes, you can go for a guided tour and simply listen to this organ’s amazing sound. This is will be a great experience for you. Gorlitz has to offer a lot if you have enough time in hand to explore.
