Teatr im. Andreas Gryphius in Głogów - a classicist theater building, located in Głogów, in the central part of the Old Town, in the vicinity of the town hall. It was established in 1799 according to the design of Christian Valentin Schultze as the seat of the multi -whale theater, offering several stage species at the same time. The theater in the building operated almost until the end of World War II, when the building and the whole city were destroyed as a result of the Soviet offensive on Głogów. In later decades, various concepts of rebuilding the Głogów theater appeared several times, but none of them was implemented. Ultimately, the building was rebuilt to the state before the destruction in 2017-2019 for the seat of the Municipal Culture Center and also the place of organizing concerts and performances, as well as the conference.

The origins of the Głogów Town Hall date back to the end of the 13th century, to the times of the town's incorporation by Conrad I of Głogów, when a watchtower was built. Over time the building was extended and in 1349 a two-winged, brick town hall was built. The building was damaged by fires in 1420 and 1433, however, the biggest fire took place in 1574, after which the town hall was rebuilt in a Renaissance style, while the tower was topped with a cupola. The appearance of the building from that period was immortalized in the 18th century in a drawing by Friedrich Bernhard Werner, which was published in Topographia Seu Compendium Silesiae.
