Cottbus (German pronunciation: [ˈkɔtbʊs] ( listen); Lower Sorbian: Chóśebuz [ˈxɨɕɛbus]) is a university city and the second-largest city in Brandenburg, Germany. Situated around 125 km (78 mi) southeast of Berlin, on the River Spree, Cottbus is also a major railway junction with extensive sidings/depots.

Puecklerpark Branitz

Reviewed By denver60 - Denver, Colorado

Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau, one of Germany's 18th century garden architects, created a quirky, eccentric garden/park within the confines of his ancestral estate. The schloss is impressive and reveals some of Pückler-Muskau's tastes. Very interesting and enjoyable 2 hour visit - recommend.

Flugplatzmuseum Cottbus

Reviewed By JaakkoTapio - Helsinki, Finland

This small aviation museum has a little bit different sortiment of equipments to show. This comes from special history before & after war times. It has been one of the most important place for Germany's Luftwaffe (just befor WW2 & during it) by test & development of airworthy technolioges etc. At the end of War (1945) there came American soldiers at first (which can been seen at museum),, but they must leave out, thank,s for (un)fair agreements between allied forces (Mr. Stalin want to take everything). After that it took over 50 years with technology of Russian red army,,, and from 90's -> nowadays the present Bundeswehr is still there.
If you have visited many aircraft & aviation museum, this might be a surprise?

Tierpark Cottbus

Reviewed By Miroslav K

I am coming from city which has greater ZOO so I can't avoid criticism of size and amount of animals - but some animals are unique to see (at least for me they was). However if you have to stay for weekend in Cottbus, the visit is pleasant change and something different to other activities.

Reviewed By hmr07407 - Thuringia, Germany

Die Route unserer Spreewald-Radtour führte uns u.a. auch in das Dorf Dissen, welches für seine vielen Storchennester bekannt ist. Wir entschlossen uns spontan zu einem Besuch des Heimatmuseums und wurden nicht enttäuscht. In mehreren Zimmer kann man sich über die Tradition und das frühere Leben der Menschen im Spreewald informieren. Wir fanden es sehr gelungen.

Badesee Sachsendorf

Reviewed By dionisia3110 - Cottbus, Germany

Если вдруг кто-то в жаркий день окажется в г. Котбусе, земля Бранденбург, ФРГ, то я рекомендую ему посетить небольшое лесное озеро с чистой водой и песчаным пляжем. До места удобно добираться автобусом № 16 (остановка Waldweg), в пределах самого города. От остановки нужно выйти на улицу Lerhenstrasse и идти пешком минут 20 до объекта. Посетив и оценив озера в районах Котбуса Мадлоу и Бранитц, скажу, что озеро Заксендорф самое приятное из трех для купания и загорания. Чистота воды и бархатный песочек позволяют забыть, что вы находитесь не на мировом курорте. Зона купания оборудована кабинами-туалетами. Только о пропитании нужно позаботиться заранее, устроив небольшой пикник между лесом и водой!
