More about the History of Greiz

The prime location of Greiz at the river Weiße Elster and the stream Göltzsch made it a fast growing town. It kept expanding during the last 1000 years. It has been recognized as town in the 13th century for the first time. Later the Reuß, a ruling German dynasty, built 2 castles in Greiz: the "Oberes Schloss" (Upper castle) and the "Unteres Schloss" (Lower castle). Both were built by famous architects and are still considered unique. Greiz has a large park in its center which is classified as an English garden. Its landscape is unique and well worth a visit. Thomasstraße, Burgstraße, Marktstraße, Waldstraße, and Leonhardtstraße with their Jugendstil houses are well known examples of that architectural style. In Prof.-Dr.-Friedrich-Schneider-Straße 4 there is one of the earliest examples of Art Deco architecture (built in 1911).
