Places of interest
Immediately before our door there is the Obermarkt wich belongs to the remarkable place. The Trench ruler held in 1813 an army show from the balcony of the so-called Napoleon's houseauses.
The well at the upper market comes from 1590. At that time he served as an Ornamental and Schöpfbrunnen and was extended in the course of the following centuries steadily, was changed and moved. Today he stands again on his original place.
The city hall of Görlitz was mentioned already in the 14th century, the clock in the city hall tower comes from 1524.
Approach to the town hall you find the meridian stone. This registers that the 15th meridian (longitude east) runs through the middle of Görlitz.
Old Town bridge
Since October 2014 the new Old Town bridge connects both side of the Neiße again. With it three formerly seven bridges span the river again and Görlitz/Zgorzelec moves up again closer. From the hotel the bridge is to be reached at 5 walking minutes.
The round arch main entrance – under the name Flüsterbogen famously – comes from the late Gothic. He owns a Kehlung, which transfers the sound of one side to the others.
On the mountain Helter, an elevation on the northwest Old Town border, the barrack construction originated in 1854-1858 for the 5th hunter's battailion (originally 1st protection department).
Really the construction perfect in 1858 with massive facades from quarrystone and bricks worked like a fortress.
