Schlieben is one of the northernmost wine-growing regions in Germany. Back in the 13th century, the Cistercian monks from the nearby Dobrilugk (Doberlug) Monastery planted the first vineyards here. After its heyday in the 16th and 17th centuries, wine growing largely ceased in the early 20th century. Since 1992, grapes have been grown for wine in Schlieben on the south-facing side of the Langer Berg. Now, over 2,000 “Müller-Thurgau” and “Bacchus” grape varieties have flourished. Get to know Schlieben wine, which has won many awards at the state and federal wine awards, and taste it on a guided tour.
The 30 or more wine cellars along the historic Kellerstrasse, which have been dug into the Langer Berg hill since around 1540, are a unique feature of this area. They were used to store the wines, but also to store ice. Today, the cellars are used for private parties and functions.
