Cottbus is always worth a visit

On the other hand, Cottbus’s old town has also a lot to offer in terms of tourism, culture and recreation. If you are interested in the more than 850 years of history of the city, you will be fully satisfied. Beautiful buildings from the Baroque era and impressive witnesses of the Middle Ages, such as the 13th-century Spremberger Turm, offer the scenery to enjoy a leisurely city stroll.

Tradition and modernity

But also for the physical pleasures is taken care of. For example, Cottbus is famous for its tree cake. In the heart of the historic centre of Cottbus, right next to the traditional Conditorei und Cafe Lauterbach lovers of this delicacy find our Baumkuchen Manufaktur.

If you want to enjoy first-hand traditional crafts in addition to the museums, parks and other tourist highlights, then you will have the opportunity to witness the birth of the Baumkuchen in our Baumkuchen-Manufaktur.

Groups of 12 to 20 people can watch the pastry chef bake the original Cottbuser Baumkuchen and get everything explained exactly. After baking, of course, follows a tasting.
