Cycle all the way from the Ice Age into the future. The cycle path takes you through the nature reserve Euloer Bruch, past pond areas and woodlands, and through the villages Jamno (62) and Gosda (64). At the open-air museum “Zeitsprung” (11, “leap across time”) in Klinge you will experience the formation of the soil layers in pre-historic times that are presented like an open book. On a circular trail with information panels you can learn more about the flora and fauna of the Ice Age and the warming period, and you will see life-sized models based on fossil mammal finds, such as a mammoth. Next to the museum you can witness the latest development stage of the future local recreation area Klinger See, a former opencast mine from the Jänschwalde surface mining site. On your way back, between Gosda (65) and Mulknitz (11), you will come across another relic of the post-mining landscape. The memorial site Heimatpark Weißagk is a lovely place to linger and a reminder of the village that had to give way to lignite mining operations. From here, there is a cycle path to Bohrau. You now continue via Bohrau and Neu Sacro (11, 7) and back to Forst (Lausitz). A detour to the village district Horno is very worthwhile. In the “archive of lost places” (10) in Horno you can learn more about the surface mining areas of the Lausitz region and its people.
