    Your adventure on the Lusatian snake is slowly coming to an end. On a flat route, it winds to the largest and most beautiful lakes in the Lusatian Lakeland, past maritime lighthouses to dreamlike sandy beaches - a crowning conclusion to your trip.You leave the hustle and bustle of Hoyerswerda on the main street. You turn south one last time to the tranquil village of Bröthen, then you go straight to the open-cast mining area around Schwarzkollm. If you like, you can indulge in the magic of the KRABAT mill and immerse yourself in the world of the legendary figure Krabat. The magician is said to have learned the magic craft in the mill. An adventure path brings you closer to the story with many lovingly depicted scenes.To the right and left of the path you can always see relics of the open-cast mine. Lignite was formerly mined on the Lusatian Lake District, but the mining areas were gradually transformed by flooding into the beautiful lake landscape through which you are now hiking. Every lake shimmers in different colors. The nearby Partwitz lake glows turquoise blue like in the Caribbean. You can enjoy the deep blue on the shores of Lake Geierswalder and take a break at the red and white lighthouse.Over the Koschener Canal you walk to the Senftenberger See and to Großkoschen, where your experience on the Lausitzer Schlange comes to an end. On the beach you can bury your stray feet deep in the sand or celebrate your finish in one of the cute beach cafes.The next train connection for the journey home can be found in Senftenberg on the other side of the lake. You can get there very comfortably by ferry and enjoy the great lake panorama from the water. Alternatively, you can of course hike the approximately seven and a half kilometers on the shore to Senftenberg. In Großkoschen itself you will find many nice accommodations, so you can simply delay your trip home for a day.
