Cottbus is a popular base for exploring the beautiful landscape in the surrounding area.

The Forst Rosengarten (an unique rose garden), the Bad Muskau Park and Schloss (also built by Fürst Pückler) or Neuhausen airfield are among the city's major attractions. Europe's largest open-cast-pit area can be seen from special vantage points not far from Cottbus.

Alternatively, you could visit one of the many beautiful parks in Cottbus. The green areas have been part of the city's image for generations. Cottbus gradually became one of Germany's greenest cities thanks to all the work done to regenerate and decorate the city.

A green belt of idyllic parks, alleys and promenades were built along the river Spree culminating in the wonderful park area to the south. This area contains the Spreeauen Park (Spree river valley), the Tierpark (zoo) and the famous Branitz Fürst Pückler Park.

Alternatively, take a boat trip and glide silently through the water along the endless canals of the river Spree. The Spreewald really is idyllic. Only few kilometres from Cottbus, if you are lucky you may get to see the traditional life-style of the Spreewald people.
