Lübbenau Things to Do

  • Lehde

    The village Lehde is the wellknown center of the Spreewald and the place for a lunch break, when you do the boat tour either from Lübbenau or Boblitz. Most of the locals changed their trade from farmer to restaurant chef and cater for the loads of tourists, who visit this idyllic village.

    Every where in Spreewald the famous Spreewald sour preserved cucumbers are sold. The small shops along the channels also offer Sauerkraut, different kinds of cucumbers, honey and many more local fruits and handicrafts. Those sour cucumbers are delicious!!!

Lübbenau Local Customs

  • Haystacks

    This is the way, people used to put the freshly harvested hay together in Spreewald. Actually: I do not beleive, that they still do it. But Captain Kurt said, this is still custom in Spreewald. And I saw quite a lot of them.

  • Snakes

    I have not seen any life snakes in Spreewald, But you often see wooden crowned snakes at the gables of old houses in Lübbenau and other places around the Spreewald. I was quite astonished about that, because I only know horse heads on the gables. The purpose is always the same: the snakes (or horse heads) offer protection against fire and storm.

    Boblitz is a small village with about 800 inhabitants. Here you find the quiet and the peace, that Lübbenau is lacking. Boblitz has a very small harbour for the Spreewald boats. The tour takes you to some quiet channels in the impressive natur of Spreewald. We took one of this boats. The trip brings you to Lehde, takes about 4 hours and costs 10,00 euro per person. We had a lot of fun with captain Kurt, who told us many jokes. Here you find captain Kurt's telefon-number.

    Favorite thing: One legend tells that the Spreewald was formed as follows: The devil was ploughing fields in the region. He ploughed with two big black oxen, roaring and shouting terribly. The ploughing was hard and heavy going and the oxen were making a very slow job of it. So the devil took his hat and threw it, cursing, at the oxen. They got frightened, ran off and leapt criss-cross in all directions, still pulling the plough behind them. The deep furrows left by the plough caused many small streams to form where before there was one straight river bed.
