In the southern area of the "Landesgartenschau" (state horticultural
show) a spacious landscape park has been developed. In a modern way,
it is documenting the transformation of the landscape after surface
mining had been discontinued. In front of the magnificent panorama
of the Zittau mountains the site's core area is located at the former
mining premises on the northern shore of the artificial lake.
The landscape's history between Mandau and the former opencast pit
including identifiable transformations is being presented.
Relicts of the historic cultural landscape (slopes, creeks, mature
trees) have been "dissected" and emphasized as prominent
features. Fragmentarily preserved mining facilities have been integrated
into this concept.
