A view from the Reichenbacher Turm over Obermarkt, a beautiful square the heart of the old town in Görlitz. No, the Ferris wheel is not a permanent feature. I happened to arrive in the midst of an Altstadtfestival. The place was packed, but the amusement-field devices and the market stands occluded the sight of the city itself.
