Historic Towns

The Middle Ages are being revived in many cities in the Elbe-Elster-Land. Towns and their inhabitants looked after their traditions and that is why even today you can experience and enjoy the small-town life.

Not only historic town centres are interesting for visitors but also the traditional spa town Bad Liebenwerda. It invites you to enjoy some wellness and relaxation programms.
Other towns like Uebigau, Herzberg, Dobrlug-Kirchhain and Mühlberg have a historic town centre. They are waiting for your visit.


Visiting a museum is not only informative but also very entertaining. It is not about the kind of interest because architectural, natural, cultural and historical interests are covered in our museums. For example the Museum in Bad Liebenwerda revives the culture of puppet play and in the Museum in Finsterwalde you can explore a very old small grocery shop as it was common 150 years ago.
