From the playground in Uferstraße you will have a great view of the Old Town Bridge, which has been connecting the Polish part and the German part of the city since 2004.
A beautiful park, called Ochsenbastei, is located above the playground. A very special playground can be discovered in the city park. It was created by "Kulturinsel Einsiedel" and is a real unicum! The Meridianstein (Meridian Stone) is also located in the city park, becauce the 15th meridian runs through Görlitz.
Please pay attention to the signs at the playgrounds.
As you will also visit the Polish part of the city during the tour, all family members have to have an identity document with them.

Go back via Nikolaistraße and pass St. Peter's Church to reach the Old Town Bridge (Altstadtbrücke). The pedestrian bridge connects the two parts of the European City Görlitz/Zgorzelec and is a symbol for the two cities growing together.
Now walk along the Polish bank of the Neisse River towards ul. Cienista, where another playground is located south of the "John Paul II" city bridge. It was created in 2013. It is easily accessible via the pathes in the park of the Neisse Park, which is located to the west of the Dom Kultury. Walk via the city bridge back to Görlitz and into the city park, where you will find one of the most beautiful playgrounds in Görlitz. Finally follow Uferstraße along the Uferpark towards old town. Here you can visit another playground at the Ochsenbastei. The Ochsenbastei is a green area between the former inner and outer city wall. From here it's only a few minutes to walk to Obermarkt.
Information: If you don't want to go to the Polish side, you can walk from the Old Town Bridge along Uferstraße in the direction of the city park.
