Development of lake Scheibe

A project of the city of Hoyerswerda

Recreation and sustainable tourism

What’s behind it?

Lake Scheibe is considered THE local lake of Hoyerswerda. The central goal is to bring Hoyerswerda and the region closer to the lake, i.e. to strengthen the local recreational function of the lake for Hoyerswerda’s population potential, to improve path connections and to create points of attraction. Less than ten minutes from the city center, the former open pit mine will become a symbol of change and an example of an economic, attractive and socially and environmentally compatible use of a post-mining landscape.

A major goal of structural change in the Lusatian mining region is to increase the attractiveness of the Lakeland as a destination for vacation and recreation by further improving the range of tourist attractions in the region. The planned development on the western shore of Lake Scheibe will integrate the city of Hoyerswerda even more strongly into the overall context of the Lusatian Lakeland tourism region. This is also expected to have a positive impact on the quality of life in Hoyerswerda.
