Specific reference points at different venues display, for example, props from the German TV-thriller Wolfsland, or the filmset of the cinema film „Goethe“, or they refer to aspects of the film history of Görliwood, such as „The Grand Budapest Hotel“. All of the stops are illuminated and can be visited anytime.

Tours in Görliwood

Stops at Brauner Hirsch (Neißstraße)

The corner house "Brauner Hirsch" is one of the most popular film locations in the city. Many film crews have already been guests in the otherwise empty building for filming. The historic building shows its strengths especially in interior shots: old pharmacy ("The Sorcerer's Apprentice"), inn ("Young Karl Marx"), hotel ("The Captain"), scholars' room ("Measuring the World") - everything seems possible.

Stops at the department store (by the Church of Our Lady)

For almost 100 years, the Art Nouveau department stores, which opened in 1913, was the heart of Görlitz's retail trade. After it had already served as a backdrop for exterior shots for the films "Rosenemil", "The Reader" and "Käthe Kruse", what is probably Germany's most beautiful department stores' became a real star as Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel".
