Today the powerful cities, centers of trade, and churches built along the Via Regia are a reminder of the former trading route. This exhibition will take place in Görlitz, with the city itself as the main focus. Görlitz is the easternmost city in Germany with the largest amount of monuments. With its medieval market squares and numerous monuments, the city was an important stop along the Via Regia for centuries. The main exhibition will take place at the Kaisertrutz, an imposing 15th century bastion. On five floors the five themes of the exhibition will be presented: rebellion, foundation, market, and human exchanges. These themes will displayed through exceptional works of art and modern media installations to make the subject exciting and come to life for the visitors.
