Experience history and stories in historic cities

Kamenz - more than just a Lessing town

First and foremost, "Nathan the White" and the "Ring Parable" are associated with difficult school material. The "Lessing Museum" in Kamenz is certainly a good place to introduce older children to these subjects outside the classroom. Or on an entertaining walk through Lessing's small but beautiful birthplace along the stages of his childhood. But Kamenz also offers special experiences away from world literary themes. For example, you can climb one of the historic observation towers or visit the Museum der Weslausitz with its "Elementarium", a landscape museum for the whole family. On a journey through time from the past to the present, visitors are expressly encouraged to touch and participate. Another insider tip for the little ones: The legend of the good Sorbian sorcerer's apprentice "Krabat" can be experienced on a playground of the same name right next to the old town.

Löbau - the town on the mountain

Löbau means lovely in the Slavic translation and that is exactly how you will experience this surprisingly small, pretty town with its historic center. A huge town hall stands on the market square. Children's eyes grow wide when, next to the moon phase clock, the Judutekopf opens its large mechanical mouth for each quarter. Not far away, you can actively experience history in the city museum.

A world-famous "MODERN" building The  "Haus Schminke" is reminiscent of a ship in its shape.  A visit is worthwhile for the whole family, as the architect, Hans Scharoun, came up with some very surprising and amusing details, especially for children, which are still fascinating today.

"Out into nature" is the motto of the next excursion destination, Löbauer Berg. The town's landmark stands proudly and magnificently at the top - the cast-iron observation tower from which you can look out over the beautiful Upper Lusatia and discover the next excursion destinations.

Zittau - the town in the border triangle

The baroque beauty of Zittau was described as the richest of the alliance towns. The facades of the baroque town houses are impressive witnesses. The great cultural wealth of the town is particularly evident in the treasures in the museums and in the events of the Gerhart-Hauptmann Theater Görlitz-Zittau. Be sure to take a look at the "Large and Small Zittau Lenten Cloths", which are unique in Germany. 

Zittau - the town in the border triangle. This statement can be taken literally here, as the border with Poland is directly adjacent to the town and the border with the Czech Republic begins just a few kilometers further on. All visitors can see the town against the impressive backdrop of the Zittau Mountains. The "Zittauer Gebirge" vacation region in particular, , offers a wide range of excursion and recreational opportunities with 300 km of well-marked hiking trails, numerous mountain and climbing peaks, viewpoints, mountain restaurants and rest areas.
