A beautiful, religious art work and a must see in the city of grand old gorlitz. The Oil garden and Double chapel is really good.

It's only a couple Euros to get in, they will give you an English language self guided tour packet to read. It's probably only around 20-30 minutes to get your fill here.

Replica of the purported original Holy Sepulchre, which itself no longer exists, the site is of some interest. There is not a great deal to see, but an English language folder is available to explain the individual buildings and their significance. Staff were welcoming. About...More

This is a very realistic ´copy` of the original ensemble in Jerusalem and is well worth a visit for those who are interested in the subject

Lovely, calm, religious site with long history. Find info at the entrance. Fee is reasonable. We visited with sunny winter weather while no other visitors were there. We enjoyed the walk up to the hill and the town view.
