1. The Holy Sepulchre

Show sight on map

The Holy Sepulchre in Görlitz, also known as Görlitz Jerusalem, was created as a religious work of art that extends from the crypt of the Church of St. Peter and Paul across the urban space to the Holy Sepulchre. It is one of the main attractions of the city. The Holy Sepulchre Chapel in the city on the Neisse, which became the model for many comparable complexes due to its early date of origin, is a reduced copy of the Jerusalem original from the time of the High Middle Ages, whose accuracy has not been achieved in any other replica of the Holy Sepulchre in Germany. It was deliberately integrated into the landscape. The original Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem was examined by the future mayor Georg Emmerich and Agnete Fingerin when they made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
