    The height of the Bishopric is a 131.2 m high elevation between the Cospudener See and the BELANTIS amusement park Leipzig south of Leipzig. The name goes back to the forest area "diocese", which was before the beginning of the mining activity for the lignite mining in the immediate vicinity. As part of the EXPO 2000, a 35 m high observation tower was erected on the diocese's height, which should remind us of its former industrial slates. From the height of the diocese to the visitor, the Cospudener See in the northeast and the flooded former Zwenkau opencast mine in the south offer a unique panorama of the contrast between the already completed and refurbished mining landscape.

    Not only with the bike, also with inliners or on foot worth a visit. Very nice and worth seeing are the bison at the foot of the diocese's height and the Bisonbratwurst. Currently, the snack is renewed.

    Very nice view of Cospudener lake. Worth a visit, if you once again surrounded the lake. The bison sausage at the local snack is delicious.

    Not only cycling, but also climbing stairs ... The lookout tower offers a beautiful view of the Leipzig lowland bay and the Neuseenland.

    You should have a head for heights, but it's worth it!
