    Leave civilization behind you and enjoy pure nature? Then out with you and off towards the Planitzwald. In addition to numerous harmless mountains, there are deep blue to turquoise lakes hidden in the middle of the forest. They are former open-cast mine holes, which with their rugged rock edges form a great photo opportunity and are reminiscent of volcanic craters.With the RB 110 you drive out to Naunhof. You can also choose to take the PlusBus lines 640 (from Klinga or Brandis) or 641 (from Kitzscher or Grimma), 644 (from Grimma or Brandis) to get there. From here it's straight ahead. You walk past the Grillensee and Moritzsee, cross the A 14 and finally dive into the green of the forest behind Ammelshain. The first picturesque pond landscapes await you on Haselberg.Wherever fish romp around today, stone picks used to be swung. The old blue and black quarries will cast a spell over you. The edge of the rock falls directly into the blue water and forms beautiful crater lakes. If you can finally break away from the sight, you walk past the no less attractive Schmielteich and on over the shady paths of the Planitzwald.The forest opens up and in front of you is not only your destination Wurzen, but also the leisurely flowing hollow that you cross with a ferry. In Wurzen you take the RE 50, the S-Bahn line S3 or one of the numerous bus lines (PlusBus 610 to Bad Lausick, 619 to Colditz, 630 to Wermsdorf, 641 to Kitzscher, 644 to Brandis, 690 to Leipzig or 693/694 Wurzen) and drive home relaxed.
