Visit the Grand Budapest Hotel in Görlitz!
You're not guaranteed to meet film stars if you go there, but there's a good chance, as it's been a favourite location for many films. If you'd been there in 2012-3 you might have bumped into Bill Murray buying a bratwurst or Ralph Fiennes and Willem Defoe enjoying a quiet drink, as Wes Anderson was shooting his Oscar-winning "Grand Budapest Hotel" around the town, but especially in the Art Nouveau Görlitzer Warenhaus Department Store.
The department store is deserted now (although apparently there are plans to reopen it soon) but we managed to get inside and explore. It was quite a trip to wander around the former film set, working out where the various scenes took place!
