This round trip runs along the Spree river from Brandenburg to the north of Saxony. The Lower Lusatian Mining Tour continues idyllically along the Kleine Spree, passing Lake Bernsteinsee and Lake Scheibesee before reaching the next stop: Hoyerswerda, in the Communist era home to a large number of energy workers. In order to get a complete picture of the mining history in Lusatia, visiting Hoyerswerda’s Neustadt district, built entirely using prefabricated concrete, is just as recommended as visiting the energy factory in the district of Knappenrode. In the closed-down briquette factory three times a day the announcement is made – ’Shift start!’ For a brief moment the factory then comes back to life. The noise from the machines is simply deafening.
