That attracts filmmakers to the city on the River Neisse. Görlitz has provided the setting for some seventy films to date, including Hollywood movies such as "Inglourious Basterds" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel." You can find out more about how and where the films were shot on a guided tour. Görlitz's streets and squares also provide a stage for theatre productions. Its international street theatre festival, ViaThea, took place for the 20th time this August. Whenever it's running, it becomes especially clear that Görlitz has a sister city Zgorzelec, on the Polish side of the Neisse. The productions take place in both halves of the joint city of Görlitz/Zgorzelec. And with its architectural riches, it's not surprising that Görlitz is also a perfect location for fashion shoots.
