story and philosophy
The Emmerich is located in the heart of the historical center of Görlitz. After years of vacancy the building experienced a transition and opened its doors in May 2014!
Originally the Emmerich has been home to the major Georg Emmerich, an influential son of Görlitz. He helped developing the town in its bloom and lived here from 1422 to 1507. For sure he had an eventful life: because of an affair he pilgrimaged to Jerusalem to do penance. As a highlight of his return an exact copy of the holy grave in Jerusalem has been built in Görlitz.
This secret love affair to Benigna Horschel outruns him eventually. After hundreds of years she returns to his house. Our day bar Horschel will soon offer culinary specialities and the time to linger in easiness.
