Gorlitz has such lovely old streets that are wonderful to explore. I spent hours just walking through the old cobbled streets, looking at the old buildings, town squares and beautiful churches.
The old round gunpowder tower “The Fat Tower” on one of the many town squares,
A hidden courtyard containing some lovely restaurants and buildings
Lower Market Square with the Town Hall Tower on the left.
And as soon as I finished running the Europa Marathon I had to do two things. Firstly hydration, and secondly food. Luckily they were both available right at the finish line.
And I can promise you that I had more than 1 of both. Refuelling, of course, is very important!
This was my pre-marathon dinner when I raced the Europa Marathon in Gorlitz. Not only was it excellent, but it certainly hit the spot. Just perfect before a long race. I ate it at a lovely restaurant called The Potato House. It was so good we had a couple of meals there.

We bought this cheese at a market in Gorlitz, Germany. It was good, very good. So good in fact that it din’t last long at all. We should have bought 2 cheeses instead of just the one, but then maybe it was good that we only stuck to the one.
