Görlitz Things to Do: 188 reviews and 535 photos
On the south side of the Obermarkt stands the Holy Trinity Church with one of the most precious church interiors in Görlitz.
In 1245 Franciscan monks consecrated the Church. Although originally a Romanesque structure renovations in 1380 gave the church its current late-Gothic appearance.
When the Reformation took hold in Silesia in 1563, the monks were forced to surrender the keys to the church.
The church?s Tower is unusually thin (the locals call it ?Monk?). Notable among its Late Gothic furnishings are the monks' stalls (1484), an "Entombment" (1492), a figure of Christ resting (c. 1500), an altar with the "Golden Virgin" (c. 1511).
Entrance is free: daily 9.00-18.00.
