Time to discover and time to play - a family-friendly tour through the historical old town of Görlitz with some side trips to the most beautiful playgrounds.

This tour through the city of Görlitz will take you to the most beautiful playgrounds for children as well as to sights for interested adults. Noteworthy are for example the Holy Sepulchre, a copy of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem or the St. Nicholas‘ Tower (Nikolaiturm), the oldest tower in Görlitz. During this tour you will pass St. Peter's Church with its unique "Sun Organ". Visitors are invited to enjoy regular public organ presentations, which are called “Orgel Punkt 12” from April to October every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 12 o’clock.

From the playground in Uferstraße you will have a great view of the Old Town Bridge, which has been connecting the Polish part and the German part of the city since 2004.

A beautiful park, called Ochsenbastei, is located above the playground. A very special playground can be discovered in the city park. It was created by "Kulturinsel Einsiedel" and is a real unicum! The Meridianstein (Meridian Stone) is also located in the city park, becauce the 15th meridian runs through Görlitz.
