Industrial Heritage

Three impressive objects give evidence for the once important open-cast mining of brown coal in the Elbe-Elster-Land. The Conveyor Bridge F60 in Lichterfeld, the Briquette Factory “Louise” in Domsdorf and the Power Plant in Plessa show how to generate energy from brown coal.

Furthermore many mills show a long history of generating energy. In the 18th century over 180 mills existed in our region. Some of them still exist and work with their old techniques. The visitor will be surprised how former people used innovative constructions for generating energy from Mother Nature. Legends and histories let the visitor experience a mysterious flair.
