A lifestyle expat travel blog about culture, history, Brexit, the Royal Family, travels around the world, Europe, and being British in Berlin!
Do you remember when I told you that I went to France, England, Spain, and Poland, and spent most of the summer either trying to find a way to get to England or running through Germany with the €9-Euro-Ticket?
It was amaaaaaaazing!
One of the places we went to was a city called Görlitz.
In truth, I had never heard of it until an Irish blogger friend of mine mentioned that she had visited in early 2022!
I was fascinated about what she wrote.
But what really got my juices flowing, was the fact that Görlitz was on the border of Poland!
In fact, it’s so close, that you merely have to walk across a single bridge and you’re right there.
We adore Poland, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about.
In doing so, I reached out to the lovely people at Stadt Görlitz, who very kindly offered to show us around.
We were not disappointed.
People have been …
And by people, I mean everyone!
EVERYONE has been coming here, as it’s the most preserved city in Germany that was (luckily), untouched by both World Wars!
So we were able to go on a brilliant city walk, through the historic old town.
I’m all about history and culture, so we also visited the Upper Lusatian Library of Sciences, the best Baroque House in Görlitz, the Cultural History Museum, the Silesian Museum, the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History, a wide variety of churches, and the Jacob Böhme House on the Polish side of the city.
Sadly, the only thing left of it’s Jewish history is the Görlitz Synagogue Cultural Forum.
We also went on a bus ride around town, on the Gorliwood Explorer, a beer tour to the Görlitzer Landskron Brewery, which was brilliant, and an adorable trip over the bridge, to Poland.
More about that next week!

Hey, thanks for the shout out and glad you made it to Görlitz and enjoyed it as much as I did if not more 🙂
You’re very welcome Linda.
Your article was so hilarious, how could I not? 😀
We had a lovely time in Görlitz, and I was most impressed. It was a brilliant start to all the many towns and cities I visited in the summer, using the €9-Euro-Ticket.
What a fantastic initiative!
p.s. If you’re ever around my corner, let’s meet up! 😀
