The fifth stage of the tour is all about exploring Lake Senftenberger See and lots of industrial culture. From Senftenberg you continue to Niemtsch along Lake Senftenberger See. Lake Senftenberger See is an excellent example of successful re-cultivation. Here, guests can expect excellent bathing areas, plenty of water sports facilities, marinas and an amphitheatre. A detour takes you to Germany’s first garden city, once built as a colony for mining workers; it is considered the most beautiful works housing estate in the Lausitz region.
