Special exhibition in the City Museum Cottbus.

The exhibition shows Fontane on the trail of the Sorbs and Wends in the Spreewald and follows the descriptions of the upheaval situation in which Brandenburg was in the mid-19th century. It invites you to discover traditional costumes, legends, myths and the diverse landscape with its people. The focus is also on the Lusatian travel literature of the 19th century, which will also be the subject of a scientific conference.
