The circular “Garten City Tour” is 38 kilometres long and will take you from Germany’s first garden city “Marga” in Senftenberg’s district Brieske, via the garden city “Lauta-Nord” to Germany’s youngest garden city “Erika” in Laubusch. You will visit the three garden cities that are protected monuments and that tell a story of the riches of the formerly thriving industrial region. Demand for workers increased rapidly, as mining developed in the Lausitz region. Three attractive works housing estates were created in the early 20th century to accommodate workers. Inspired by the idea of the garden city, the estates are characterised by spacious greens and centres with shops, restaurants and theatres. The garden cities were build for miners and other staff members of the mines “Marga” and “Erika”, and for the workers of the aluminium mill in Lauta-Nord. The goal was to establish residential areas that were functional yet people-friendly and that formed a contrast to the typical workers’ quarters. The bright, spacious estates that are surrounded by gardens and green areas continue to radiate a very particular charm. Taking a look over garden fences and behind hedges is very worthwhile.
