Neukieritzsch

There is so much to discover and experience in the parish of Neukieritzsch, which is situated in southern Leipzig New Lakeland. Brightly coloured holiday homes line the Lagune Kahnsdorf promenade on Lake Hain. In addition to the on-site sailing school and boat hire, there are further shops and tourist attractions for life on the water. At the centre of the village is an idyllic café converted from the former manor house, which was once visited by Friedrich Schiller.

Katharina von Bora is another prominent figure associated with Neukieritzsch. She has gone down in history as the wife of Martin Luther and is fittingly commemorated by the plaques installed in Kieritzsch village church. The parish of Neukieritzsch is situated on the Luther Trail, the Pleisser cycling route and the “Via Imperii” pilgrims’ trail. From the viewing point in the district of Deutzen, enthusiasts have the opportunity to see open-cast mining in operation.
