Upper Lusatia – a land rich in history. Having accumulated its wealth from the trading route of the Via Regia once, present-day Upper Lusatia is most of all intriguing by its unique natural beauty. Near the town of Bautzen, the Spree river gains power to eventually join the Havel river in 400-km-distant Berlin. The closed-down open-cast lignite pits that are turning into what is expected to become the nature reserve of the Lusatian Lake District are making an impression already. The characteristic half-timbered ‘Umgebinde’ houses closely related to the local weaving industry, which have now carefully been restored, are evenly fascinating.
Especially around Easter, there is plenty to see and hear in Upper Lusatia. The Easter eggs, finely painted with filigree ornaments following old Sorbian tradition, delight young and old, and the festively adorned Easter riders on horseback rejoice visitors with their hymns.
