Southwest of Hoyerswerda in the small village of Zeißholz is the source of the Vincenzgraben. It flows through the villages of Zeißholz, Scheckthal and past Dubring. On its further way the Vincenzgraben passes through the forest of the monastery St. Marienstern, the Dubringer Moor as well as the small village Michalken and Dörgenhausen, to then flow into the Schwarze Elster.

Today, the Zeißholz village museum is a reminder of the former briquette factory, which was shut down in the early 1990s. Due to intensive mining in the region around the spring, the Vincenzgraben was used as the main receiving watercourse for the discharge of mine water. With the discharge of water from Lake Clara and sump water from the Oßling graywacke open pit mine, the Vincenzgraben became heavily polluted with heavy metals over the years.

In order to protect the Dubringer Moor and the Schwarze Elster with its biodiversity, a new regulation of the receiving water in the mining rehabilitation area was implemented, as it was not possible to discharge the mine water into Lake Clara. The Vincenzgraben also ensures a strong sulfate input into the Black Elster, as it transports a high sulfur content from the moor via the water.

How further measures are to ensure that the Vincenzgraben again receives a qualitative improvement can be learned during an excursion "Stories along the Vincenzgraben" with a certified tour guide. The guide takes interested people on the way to the source of the Vincenzgraben, starting at the "Teichwirtschaft Zelder" in the small village of Neudorf/Klösterlich. Visited during the bike tour are the lookout tower Dubringer Moor, the so-called "Pechteiche", the source of the Vincenzgraben, the village museum "Zeißholz" and much more. Here you can experience the diversity of nature on the edge of the Lusatian Lakeland!

Weatherproof clothes as well as a bicycle for demanding forest paths are the prerequisite for approx. 5 hours lasting and 20 km long bicycle tour.
