This upcoming holiday season the Lausitz lake district awaits holidaymakers and day trippers from Berlin with an even better service and leisure attractions, including a bigger lake district and a new pleasure boat. A new portal for booking holiday accommodation will also be coming online in April. 150 kilometres south of the German capital Europe’s largest region of artificial lakes is continuing to grow. Flooding of the former brown coal quarries has created a holiday paradise with over 20 lakes and the region will be represented with a major display at ITB Berlin. Ten of the lakes covering a surface area of 7,000 hectares are to be joined up by canals to make it possible for boating enthusiasts to travel from one lake to another. The first of these canals through which boats can pass is the Koschener Kanal, which joins Senftenberger See and Geierswalder See.From June onwards a solar-powered catamaran owned by the Löwa shipping company will be operating round trips from Stadthafen Senftenberg via Senftenberger See and the Koschener Kanal to neighbouring Geierswalder See and Geierswalde.
Besides fun on the beach and water activities such as jet skiing and sailing the Lausitz lake district also offers numerous attractions on land. For cyclists there are wide paths on level ground for travelling around the new lakes as well as several long-distance paths such as the Seenland route.
