Logo/route sign: Not specified

How to get there:
  • Public transport: From Berlin central station, take the RE1 (Cottbus) to Fürstenwalde (about 50 minutes).

Route: Parking on Goetheplatz, Altstädter Kiez, Spreepromenade, Niederlagetor, Goetheplatz parking

Route description: During its 750-year history, Fürstenwalde was the bishops’ seat of the Diocese of Lebus for more than 200 years. The Cathedral was almost completely destroyed in 1945. The most precious artefact in the interior of the reconstructed building is the 12 metre high tabernacle created by the Freiburg sculptor Franz Maidburg in 1517. Visitors interested in history should visit the local history museum to see the most important coin discovery in the region, comprising 317 silver coins from the time of the Thirty Year War. In addition, exhibitions provide information about the prehistory and early history of the region, history of the town and its later industrial development. A highlight in the truest sense of the word is the lighthouse brought back from the Baltic Sea, which was originally built in the town in 1909. The museum’s basement also conceals some real treasures. It contains a display catalogue of Europe’s largest rock collection. Anyone who wants to see more will find more exhibits in the rock garden of the Bürgerpark gardens. The remains of the former bishops’ seat and the old town wall with the Bullenturm tower complete the cathedral site. Did you know that Fürstenwalde is the home of the art of traditional brewing? In the cellars of the Altes Rathaus, beer lovers can sample the quality of the barley brew.
