HU-Docs-Excursion to Görlitz and Bautzen                                       

Sa-Su, 13 -14 December 2014



Visit with us the romantic cities of Görlitz and Bautzen, with their old city centers and their typical Christmas markets! A doctoral student of the HU who is studying the identity of Görlitz and who works also as guide will show us both cities (tours in German language).


Görlitz's Baroque center escaped from the war destructions and was so well renovated, that it is often used as location for historical films. We will also visit the polish quarters beyound the Neiße. Bautzen is a center for the Sorbian culture, a slavish minority of the region with own language and culture. the town is also known for their prisons that became sadly famous during the DDR.
