Old Town Görlitz, Germany
In Gorlitz, you’re walking through history all the time.” This incredible historical city’s central core, with roughly 4,000 officially registered historic buildings, suffered no bomb damage during World War II and provides an architectural timeline that stretches from early Gothic to art nouveau. It has been almost entirely renovated under “absolutely strict” guidelines, says Elke, that allow no changes to the original doors or windows or colors, which range from orange to yellow to gray and white.
