Goerlitz New Town Hall

Goerlitz New Town Hall


Neo-Renaissance on the Lower Market

The New Town Hall on Untermarkt in the old town of Görlitz was built in 1903 to replace two baroque town houses. The representative building is designed in the neo-Renaissance style and can be seen structurally as an extension to the Old Town Hall, to which it is connected. Although the new building was put out to public tender in an architectural competition in 1895, it was ultimately decided to implement the original municipal plans for the extension of the town hall between Jüdenstraße and Helle Gasse. A special eye-catcher of the New Town Hall is the richly decorated façade, which is adorned with the coats of arms of the six member towns of the Upper Lusatian Six Towns League.
