In the former Communist East Germany, Görlitz was largely neglected. Over the past 20 years, though, the historic center has been restored to its former glory. It’s a favorite of visitors and also of film crews, who use the historic facades as a backdrop. Our tour takes us past a variety of spectacular Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings. We take a look at the city’s distinctive "Hall Houses” and pay a visit to the church of St. Peter and St. Paul and its fabled Sun Organ.
