Please let us introduce you to the Otto-Dix City Gera – an amiable and hospitable metropolis in East Thüringen. Gera, the former capital and residency city of the Principality of Reuß, attracts visitors from everywhere every day. You can enjoy a stroll through the city, a shopping tour, learn everything about the tradition of our cultural history, or do something for leisure and fun – anything you do will be absolutely worthwhile.
Three shopping centres enhance Gera’s appeal towards its visitors: the region’s largest and most modern shopping centre Gera-Arcaden, the Amthorpassage adjacent to the traditional shopping mile Sorge with its shops inviting you to take a stroll by, and the ample department store Müller. In the city centre, you also find the big mall Elsterforum with Galeria Kaufhof and many other shops. Gera keeps gaining more importance as a shopping city and its visitors have five parking decks available. Another magnet for visitors and residents is the modern UCI cinema and the Hofwiesenbad swimming pool, which has kept marvelling all visitors with unlimited fun since its renovation. Gera also has to offer many cultural aspects like museums, the theatre, the Kultur- and Kongresszentrum (culture- and congress centre) and its city festivals.
