There are many new and fascinating ways to discover the unique landscape of Lusatia and the monuments to its industrial past. Mining and coal production have shaped Lusatia since the mid-19th century and have given the region a distinct industrial character. Today, former power stations and briquette factories that were once closed to the public have now become part of the Lusatian Lakeland experience. These silent witnesses to a bygone era are being given a new lease of life as landmarks, museums and unconventional event venues, providing a striking backdrop that keeps the memory of their industrial past alive.
There are also a whole host of museums in the Lusatian Lakeland documenting the region’s colourful history. You can learn about the customs and traditions of the Sorbs, a Slavic people at home in this region, at local history exhibitions, and watch traditional crafts being made in demonstration workshops. The theatres and performance venues in the Lusatian Lakeland add to the programme of cultural entertainment on offer, with the open-air theatres at Lake Senftenberg or Lake Bärwalde being a real highlight in the summer. If you enjoy being out in the fresh air, you might also like to go on a guided tour or a walk through one of the many parks and gardens.
Come and discover the Lusatian Lakeland for yourself and enjoy the many attractions on offer.
