Minibus tour with boat trip – ‘Phoenix Quick Spin’
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the landscape of the Lusatian Lakeland is metamorphosing from a former mining area into Europe’s largest man-made waterscape. On this whistlestop tour, named after the pleasure boat Aqua Phönix, you can experience the transformation of the landscape both from land and from water.
The trip starts with a guided tour in a minibus through the Lusatian Lakeland. At various stops along the way, you will see the various stages of the transformation process and will visit five lakes, each with a very different character. In Geierswalde you then board the solar catamaran Aqua Phönix for a leisurely cruise through the lock on the Koschen Canal and back to Senftenberg marina.
