Tour 2: Historical old town and its 19th century extension


In the late 19th century Görlitz was booming and grew from 8.000 to more than 85.000 inhabitants. In this founding time of the modern German state a whole new town was built which is today the biggest 19th century city quarter in Germany that has been kept in its totality. Besides the historic town (see tour 1) you will discover in this tour this beautiful area with houses and buildings in Classicism, Art Nouveau, and Historicism and of course the famous Art Nouveau department store (known from ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’).
