The Lower Lusatian Mining Tour is an exciting journey of discovery through more than 150 years of lignite history.
On the way through the south of Brandenburg and the north of Saxony, they not only pass idyllic lakes, pristine floodplain landscapes, dreamy villages, dense pine forests and vast fields, but also modern coal-fired power plants and gigantic open-cast mining technology. Important industrial heritage sites such as the F60 visitor mine, the Knappenrode energy factory or the enigmatic Lauchhammer bio-towers bring the region's industrial past within reach. Former working worlds, the history of technology and the miners' daily route can be experienced up close. Viewpoints along the route offer a glimpse of imposing expanses and towering open-cast mining equipment in the few coal mining fields still in operation.
Incidentally, there couldn't be a more fitting companion for the trail, as legend has it that it was the devil who buried the black gold in the Lusatian soil ages ago.
The red "Record Devil" serves as the trail sign.
The tour leads you along a completely newly created cycle path with an asphalt surface.
