Bitterfeld Things to Do

    During the 1950s and 1960s huge open lignite mining took place in this region. After reunification the holes were filled with water. Today these regions are popular resorts. At the "Goitzsche Park " you can find the landmark of Bitterfeld, the Pegelturm (water level tower). When I was here the park was still under construction but meanwhile it is a popular recreation resort and a place where live events, like concerts, take place.

    The neo-Baroque Stadtapotheke (town pharmacy) is the oldest building of Bitterfeld. It is situated next to the town hall and was built in the 16th century. Since 1816 it is used as pharmacy.

    In the centre of the town is a huge green park, called "Grüne Lunge" (green lung). It was planted in the early 20th century. A pond with ducks and swans, a playground for children as well as a petting zoo can be found here.

    Favorite thing: "Bist du nicht von dieser Welt, so kommst du wohl aus Bitterfeld ?!" (If you do not come from this world you are surely from Bitterfeld). This bad quote is quite common in Germany and originally describes the bad living conditions in Bitterfeld. After the industrialisation but mainly during GDR times this region had the worst air quality due to heavy industry, open mining and a huge coal power plant. After reunification most factories closed down and the air quality is now much better.
