Luckenwalde’s appearance owes much to notable architects from the beginning of the industrial age. This is evident in the Wilhelminian, Reformist and modern style residential and industrial buildings, which have been extensively restored; giving distinction to Luckenwalde’s housing quality. There are also residential areas available for building private housing on the outskirts of the town, leading directly to the Baruth glacial valley.
In the town centre there are numerous retail establishments, specialist shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants inviting you to stroll around and linger.
Excellent support and care services for children complement the town’s good infrastructure, which, as well as offering primary, secondary, sports-oriented schools and high schools, also boasts a grammar school and the district music school.
A well structured health care system is guaranteed by the wide spectrum of specialist doctors and the German Red Cross hospital. You can be spared long treks to public offices and authorities, as the most important can be found locally.
One of the nicest ways to explore Luckenwalde and its surroundings is via the over 200 kilometre long Fläming Skate. Europe’s largest skating region with its small and large circuits is a Mecca for anyone who enjoys in-line skating or cycling. With direct links to the railway and the B101, Luckenwalde is the gateway to the Fläming Skate and therefore the ideal starting point to look around the historical treasures of the surrounding towns and villages surrounded by countryside.
By the way - Directly adjacent to the Fläming Skate, one of Germany’s largest cross-country tracks is enough to make the heart of every BMX rider beat faster.
Another special feature of the town is the Fläming Therme spa. Here you can enjoy the fun of the adventure pool or relax from the daily grind in diverse sauna and solarium areas.
Art and culture lovers will find the events calendar full to the brim. Traditional events such as the annual Theatre Festival and Tower Festival have long been attracting thousands of visitors to the town.
Numerous buildings are also of national historical significance, such as the extensively restored town theatre, which is arguably one of the most beautiful theatres in Germany and ranks as a prominent monument to modern architecture, or the hat factory built by the architect Erich Mendelssohn.
