South of Görlitz, a new tourism and leisure area is currently under development: Lake Berzdorf. Water from the Neisse River is being diverted to this former open-pit mine and in only a few years it will be one of the largest bodies of water in Saxony - an Eldorado for those seeking recreation and those who love water sports.
The vision is to turn a former industrial site into a new holiday and recreation landscape with support from the funds of the programme for the Restructuring of East German Open-pit Mines. Combined with the attraction of the historic city centre of Görlitz and the nearby ex-cursion destinations at the spot where the borders of Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany meet, there is broad tourist development potential.
Large-scale beach areas and special sites for accommodation, restaurants and water sports as well as for sport and leisure facilities will form an attractive basis for tourist development.
