Bike Touring Highlight
Visible from afar, a building towers over the city of Lübbenau and reveals that this place hides a centuries-long tradition. The baroque church of St. Nikolai seems to be the center of the city, which is confirmed by the directly adjacent market square. This is where people have met over the years to trade or even just to have a chat.Spruced-up houses, some of which were also built using timber-frame technology, and the town hall now adorn the market square and the central Ehm-Welk-Straße. This extends on one side to the castle park and on the other to a three-story brick building with a striking archway, which today houses the Spreewald Museum.Anyone who has the opportunity to linger a bit here or to stroll a little is guaranteed to meet one of the townspeople who can tell the visitor more about Lübbenau and the Spreewald. The church itself was built between 1738 and 1741.Lübbenau was once part of the Saxon rule, as evidenced by the dome tower and the Saxon post mile column in front of the church today. The Nikolaikirche is considered one of the rarest and most beautiful examples of Dresden Baroque and was built on the initiative of the landlord Moritz Carl Graf von Lynar and according to plans by the Dresden fortress mason Gottfried Findeisen. The tower is 57 meters high and was built in 1777/78.

Nice market place, nice characters and lots of possibilities, but almost always on weekends, a lot going on.
