I love visiting old churches, and the Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Gorlitz (yes, dedicated to two saints) is no exception. Just look at the lovely organ in the second picture. There has been a church on this site since the 1200’s.
I found this library by chance in Gorlitz. It was about 2 doors down from our apartment in a small museum. I was wondering around the museum when a security guard called me, took me up a flight of stairs and through a few doors for me to see this beautiful room. I was surrounded by rows and rows of books going into the distance.
If you want to see the library you have to know to look for it; you can find it here: Barockhaus Neißstraße 30 Kulturhistorisches Museum Görlitz. In the museum you might need to ask somebody to take you to the library, its magnificent.
I love the old-time look of this shot with the tram-tracks merging in the distance. The pedestrians and bicycles make it look like it could have been taken 50 years ago.
The Four-wheel Mill is an old mill on the river on the side of Gorlitz. It is now a restaurant with a lovely terrace and beautiful view of the river. The gates on the bottom left is where the water was channeled through the wheels. I can’t find any history of the mill, so if anybody knows what the mill was used for I would love to know.
Gorlit train station has been in many movies. In particular “The Book Thief” and “Alone in Berlin”. The art-deco building and period platforms are wonderful places to take pics (and the train service is excellent as well).
