Oschatz

Oschatz lies on the Via Regia between Leipzig and Dresden and is a small town of great importance to cultural history. The imposing towers of St. Aegidien’s Church can be seen from far and wide. Visitors who climb up to the historical living quarters, located in the south tower of the church, are rewarded with a particularly spectacular view of the lake and its surroundings.

The Oschatz town and weighing scale museum, with a collection of scales unrivalled in central Germany, is located in the lovingly restored old town, as is the magistrate’s house, which is thought to be the oldest secular building in central Germany. O-Schatz Park is also well worth a visit. In addition to many other attractions, this park houses the smallest zoo in Germany and is free of charge. And let’s not forget “Platsch” (“Splash”) in Oschatz, which provides year-round bathing fun for young and old alike. The sauna complex with seven different saunas and a Finnish sauna garden is especially appealing.
