I only had 24 hours in Görlitz, and the Schlesisches Museum is a good first stop. You can view multiple painted wooden ceilings dating from the Renaissance in this multi-building complex. There are some amazing carvings to be seen, including a set of coal miner...More

Very well curated permanent exhibit in a lovely location that also provides a very nice overview of the main city attractions as it has some lovely views. When I was there, they had a rotating exhibit on Art Deco in Silesia which was ok but...More
