At the border between Brandenburg and Sachsen there's a huge area, the Lausitzer Seenland, created and still in development, Europe's largest artificial lakes and a tower in the middle to watch it.
The pits of lignite mines have in the centuries left very big holes in the ground, but the relationship between Germany and landscape architecture is very old, so that was made the final decision to create a lakes zone of 30-40km.
Today you can get there by car or by bike to the high Rostiger Nagel (Rusty Nail) tower, a contemporary artwork heritage of the "Industriekultur".
In the center of the Lusatian Lakeland emerges from the combination of nine lakes with navigable channels Lusatian Lake chain to have a special meaning for the tourist development of the Lower Lausitz with approximately 7,000 acres of water surface.
