    The history of Lake Zwenkau actually begins in the late 17th century. At that time, the first brown coal was found in the south of Leipzig. About 150 years later, in 1921, the open-cast Böhlen was "opened up" and started mining lignite - the actual birth of the later lake. Over the course of its 78th anniversary, the Böhlen, Zwenkau and Cospuden open-cast mines took up around 31 km² of land, three bodies of water were relocated, four forest areas were completely or partially cut down and the inhabitants of five villages lost their homes.
