Enjoying the Lusatian Lakeland in and on the water
The Lusatian Lakeland has more than 20 new lakes just waiting for you to discover. A spectacular waterscape is being created by flooding former open-cast mines, and it already offers plenty of active recreation options in, on and by the water.
You can explore the new lakes on a raft tour, sail into the sunset on Lake Senftenberg, take to the skies while kitesurfing on Lake Bärwalde, windsurf on Lake Geierswalde or discover an underwater world as you’re diving in Lake Gräbendorf – there are exciting opportunities to suit every taste. Lake Dreiweibern, Lake Grünewald and Spremberg reservoir are great for taking a dip, or you can opt for a boat tour instead.
Eventually, a total of ten lakes are going to be linked by navigable canals to form an overall area of 7,000 hectares of interconnected water. Some links will feature spectacular locks and tunnels, and they’ll enable enthusiastic leisure cruisers to tour the lakelands freely. The first navigable link to be established in the Lusatian Lakeland was Koschen Canal, which connects Lake Senftenberg and Lake Geierswalde. This was followed in 2019 by the Barbara Canal between Lake Geierswalde and Lake Partwitz.
