e Leipzig New Lakeland is a direct result of centuries of extraction, refining and use of the natural resource of lignite. e landscape changed its appearance significantly, especially aſter the open-cast mining in the 20th century. In the course of the German reunification in the early 1990s and the conse- quently changing energy policy, this era however came to an sudden end. Within a short period of time, the whole mining infrastructure virtually disappeared. Today the landscape to the south and north of Leipzig is increasingly characterised by lakes that have developed from the open-cast mine pits the “Leipziger Neuseenland“ (e Leipzig New Lakeland). However, there is still active open-cast mining in the south- west of Leipzig today. Here, visitors have the opportunity to gain insights into the current coal mining Despite the ongoing coal mining, the appeal of the newly developed landscapes is causing the memories of the time before the lakes to fade increasingly. is small guide aims to keep these memories alive and simultaneously provide a showcase to modern open-cast mining.

In the course of the German reunication in the early 1990s and the conse-quently changing energy policy, this era however came to an sudden end. Within a short period of time, the whole mining infrastructure virtually disappeared. Today the landscape to the south and north of Leipzig is increasingly characterised by lakes that have developed from the open-cast mine pits the Leipziger Neuseenland (e Leipzig New Lakeland).

    However, there is still active open-cast mining in the south-west of Leipzig today. Here, visitors have the opportunity to gain insights into the current coal mining

    Despite the ongoing coal mining, the appeal of the newly developed landscapes is causing the memories of the time before the lakes to fade increasingly. is small guide aims to keep these memories alive and simultaneously provide a showcase to modern open-cast mining.

    e Museum in Borna oers numerous exhibits about lignite mining. e geological processes, which led to the formation of coal as well as the history of coal mining, play an essential role as the history of lignite mining and the processing industries in the exhibition. Its inuence on the lives of the people, nature and the landscape is given particular consideration.

    e age of lignite mining in Borna and the surrounding area began in 1799. Until the early 20th century, the coal was mined mainly underground. is environment is simulated by walk-in tunnels inside the museum.

    e extraction and processing of lignite has brought about and still brings signicant changes, which determine the appearance of the North-Western Saxony cultural landscape today. e Church of Emmaus in Borna becomes an impressive symbol for the inuence of lignite mining of the region. Its original location was in Heuersdorf a village that was excavated in 2009. In 2007, the church was moved to the town of Borna in a logistically highly complex operation in order to preserve the historical building and conserve it as an extraordinary memorial to those who had to leave their homes.
