Planning a trip to Görlitz? I can give you a tour in English!
I’m a native English speaker who has been living in and loving this city since December 2016. As part of creating content for this website, I have done a lot of research and exploring to find out all I can about the city, as well as taking classes for tour guides and on special historic topics.
I’ve fallen in love with this city, and I will show you why on my tour!
Tour of the Old Town of Görlitz
During this tour you will get an overview of the history and present of the old town in Görlitz, visit some of the most beautiful sites, discover where famous Hollywood films like The Grand Budapest Hotel were filmed, learn interesting facts and hear legends.
*Tour includes walking about 1.2 km / 0.7 miles, often on cobble-stones – sensible shoes are recommended. I will give the tour rain or shine.

“Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful stories on the historic sites along the cobblestoned streets of Görlitz! Hearing all the detail about each important place along the way was so helpful. I also enjoyed your adding in the tidbits on the filming spots for The Grand Budapest Hotel. I hated to leave this fairy tale world. ” – Mary from San Francisco, CA

“The city of Görlitz already has a special part in my heart but after tour with you Tessa it became even more amazing place. You have a wonderful way of communicating history as stories of interest rather than a litany of tedious and forgettable facts. I really enjoyed every minute of the tour that evening. Thanks once again.” – Beata
