Saxony Part 4: Upper Lusatian Lakeland
From Hikers’ Paradise we went to water paradise: Upper Lusatian Lakeland (Oberlausitzer Seenland). This lakeland is quite young. Here former charcoal surface mining areas are flooded. And after some years there will be a huge lakeland.
Accordingly we stayed in the lighthouse-hotel. Here everything is about water and sailing. Also in the rooms the subject can be seen with portholes at the door and thick ropes as towel rack.
Here we have been really challenged. It was raining cats and dogs all the time. What photos do you make at a lakeside in the rain?
We accepted the challenge and a rented umbrella from the hotel and went out. Voila! Also during rain you can go to the lake.
We also visited swimming holiday houses. They don’t really flow around on the lake but are fixed to the shore, but you are on the water anyway. From the rooftop terrace you have a gorgeous view over the lake. Instead of cars there are boats parked in front of them.
We ate very well at the lakeland. Everything was fresh made and very authentic. „We don’t have traut at the moment, because the fishermen won’t go on the lake these days because of the weather!“ Could there be a better freshness guarantee?
