Explore thr region
From Kretzschau, you can easily explore the surrounding "Burgenland" (Castle Country), known for its numerous structures preserved from the Middle Ages, as well as the northern-most wine region in Europe. And Zeitz is just around the corner! The vaults and tunnels below the surface are a completely different way of discovering a city. At St. Michaelis' church in the city centre, you can see an original print of Luther's theses.
If you want to be active, you can go on hikes or cycling tours in the nearby Mühltal valley or along the Elster river banks. The river is also great for rubber boat or raft tours.
