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.more
Old houses, a baroque church and an old Gate are the center of Lübbenau. The written history of Lübbenau goes back into the 14th century. Today Lübbenau has about 16.000 people. Economical most important after the end of brown coal surface mining in this area is now the Spreewald Tourism.more
Beside a castle and some old and attractive houses Lübbenau's main sightseeing spot is the Spreewald. You can take a boattrip for about 4 hours right on the many channels and small rivers right into the Spreewald. The Spreewald is the result of the last ice age and its glaciers.

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!!!
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.more
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.
