      Zittau - Town of the Lenten Veils

      Zittau, the town that marks the southeastern border of Saxony, is more than 750 years old and is situated where Upper Lusatia, Lower Silesia and Northern Bohemia merge. Once a blossoming commercial centre, Zittau used to be known as the “Town of the Rich". Its historic town centre has been almost entirely preserved.

       

      Zittau’s Lenten Veils are very unique. The Large Zittauer Lenten Veil (1472), which is 56 m2, depicts 90 biblical scenes in the St. Cross Church. Since the 19th century, instead of being surrounded by town walls, a Green Ring featuring many valuable botanic treasures has encircled the town centre.

       

      In order to see a magnificent panorama of the town, we recommend that you climb up the 60m high viewing platform of St. John’s Church, a classicist church from 1837.
