    The 17th stage of the Lausitzer Schlange takes you deep into the Upper Lusatian heath and pond landscape. It is all about the waters and their inhabitants. Numerous footbridges and viewing platforms make their observation possible. Since there is a lot of distance waiting for you again today, it makes sense to have the alarm ringing very early. Then you still have enough time for nature.It goes out into the fields. With the Ruprechttümpel and the Schafberg lake behind it you meet the first smaller bodies of water. You follow a part of the Oberlausitzer Ringweg, then the Lausitzer serpent winds along a very narrow path through a small sea of dozen pond systems. In the middle of the path you will find a wooden lookout tower from which you can watch the water birds. In the House of a Thousand Ponds in Wartha you can learn more about the life of all aquatic inhabitants.You leave the ponds and hike on soft forest paths. The towns of Geißlitz, Halbendorf and Neudorf / Spree are right on the route and you cross the Spree from time to time.After around 27 kilometers, you leave the Lausitzer queue to get to your night quarters. In Uhyst, about one kilometer from the long-distance hiking trail, you will find several accommodations on Bärwalder See.
