"European Heritage Day - Renaissance" Top 5 Page for this destination Görlitz Favorite Tip by german_eagle
Görlitz General: 16 reviews and 50 photos
Favorite thing: Some of the townhouses in private ownership open their doors for visitors on European Heritage Day. I was very happy to be able to see some of the famous examples of Renaissance architecture.
The picture shows a sculptured Renaissance pillar in the 2nd floor room of the townhouse Brüderstrasse 10. The house was built 1570. The pillar is very beautiful: female masks and puttos, above the ionic capital reliefs of the building owner and his wife plus his coat-of-arms - and all that in wonderful colours.
Absolutely fascinating are also the many painted wooden Renaissance ceilings in many townhouses, which are usually perfectly preserved. Since Görlitz has so many famous townhouses from the Renaissance (Bible House, Schönhof ...) it is really hard to choose one :-)
