Howdy!

So here we are!

Last week, I introduced you to an unspoilt gem called Spreewald!

However, one of the villages surrounding Spreewald is the historical town of Lübbenau.

It’s such an important place that surely, it deserved a blog piece of it’s own!

Lübbenau High Street & St. Nicholas Church / Lübbenau – A Day Trip from Berlin!

Lübbenau, otherwise known as Lubnjow, Lubnjow/Błota or Lübbenau/Spreewald, is a town in Brandenburg. Not too far from Berlin!

You’ll notice that streets and direction pointers seem to have both German and Polish names attached to them.

That’s because Lübbenau is located in the historical province of Lower Lusatia!

Lower Lusatia or Niederlausitz, is a historical part of Eastern Europe that used to be known as Prussia, and spreads over parts of Brandenburg in Germany, to parts of Lubusz Voivodeship in Poland!

In fact, you all know how inter-twined Germany is with Poland, so it shouldn’t be at all surprising, but it’s complicated!

Lübbenau has a population of just under 16,000 people who speak a minority language known as West Slavic or Lower Sorbian.

The town has been around since at least 1315, although there’s evidence pointing to far, far earlier!

We live in North Berlin, so Lübbenau is just a hop and a breeze away!

Having said that, if you’re a visitor to Berlin, you don’t need to leave, as it’s the greenest city in Germany!

But if you must, it’s only about an hour from Berlin, and is famous for it’s Old Town, the city wall and city gate that dates back to the Middle Ages, punting, gondoliers, canoes, traditional boats, Spreewald / the Spree Forest, history, and it’s food!

Did you know that Lübbenau has a museum – the Spreewald Museum Lübbenau – that depicts everyday life covering 150 years, and has a really cool old-time historic railway!

Not only that, but stuff is translated into English & is brilliant for children too!

Lübbenau also has a most beautiful castle!

You know how I love historical architecture, so one of the highlights of our day was a visit to the Palace & Park of Schloss Lübbenau or the Castle of Lübbenau!

The castle was a delight and it was a beautiful day so I spent most of it running through the park grounds, the orangery, the former stables, the Chancellery, and hopping (quietly) through the rooms!

Why I was hopping I couldn’t tell you, but there it is!

Wow!

So what are you waiting for?

Lübbenau!
