    There is a hint of Christmas in the air because today you are following part of the ecumenical pilgrimage route that takes you directly to the gingerbread museum. In addition, a lot of nature is waiting for you in the Upper Lusatian heath and pond landscape.You leave Niesky in a westerly direction and dive into the surrounding forest. Soon the thick forest opens up and gives you a unique view of the sea-like banks of the Quitzdorf dam. The lake is the largest reservoir in Saxony by area and, until a few years ago, was the largest inland water. On a picnic bench you can listen to the sloshing of the waves for a few minutes. You circle the lake a little away from the north shore and come back to the water in Kollm. Guest houses and an East Algae campground invite you to linger.Field and forest are your companions to Weißenberg, where you can hope for a cup of coffee with pilgrim cookies and of course gingerbread as a pilgrim in the gingerbread museum "Alte Pfefferküchlerei". The last section is really romantic again, because you follow the Löbauer water again in the Gröditzer scale, a wonderful, natural biotope.You can find accommodation either at the end of the Gröditzer scale in the Refugio Santa Martha pilgrim hostel in the Gröditz castle park or a little south of the Lausitzer Schlange in Weicha in the Pension Weichaer Hof.
