Markets in Gorlitz

Lois and I were thrilled to discover that the day after we arrived in Gorlitz was market-day, so it was the perfect time to stock up on some food for our few days in Town. It was a typical European market, with plenty of fresh vegetables, and of course cured meats and cheeses from the local producers.

I have mentioned before that one of the things we love about European travel is that markets; you really can do your fresh produce shopping at these markets.

Everybody in the town goes to market day; it is a very social and festive occasion, and clearly part of the regular social diary.

Plenty of benches to sit on while enjoying a coffee and freshly baked bread or (later in the day) a beer

The Fat Tower

Gorlitz is a lovely town in Germany; it is the eastern-most town in Germany, and the sister to Zgorzelec, which is the Westermost town in Poland! The Fat Tower is in the middle of Gorlitz. A long time ago it formed part of the city defences, but by now the town gas grown so much that the Fat Tower is right in the middle of town, and it’s not the only tower in Gorlitz; watch here for some pics of the other towers in the town.
