Gorlitz is literally the last town before Poland, and the river running through the town is the actual border.
Some of the town is therefore Polish and we visited the Polish part (named Zgorzelecz) by strolling down to the river, showing passports and walking over to the other side. I have flown into Gorlitz more recently and now that Poland is part of the EU there is no longer a guardhouse (which was manned jointly by Polish and German guards) on that bridge. Pity, as it was quite atmospheric.The airfield has fuel but on one visit there the bowser was out of action.the airfield crew are friendly and the manager has a large photograph of a Spitfire on his office wall. Yes, we are all good friends now!
We stayed at the Europa Hotel which I would describe as adequate.
