Your tourist information in the Spreewald

Arrival by car

The Spreewald area, located between Berlin and Dresden, is very easy to reach by car. The Spreewald motorway triangle is a junction in Brandenburg that connects the federal motorway 13 with the federal motorway 15.

Directly at the Spreewald triangle is the Lübbenau junction of the A13 motorway coming from Berlin - Luckauer Straße - Berliner Straße.

Visitors and holidaymakers who want to travel further south change to the A 15 at the Spreewalddreieck, where they leave the motorway for the Spreewald in Vetschau or Cottbus.


Here you will also find a convenient link to Google Maps. Depending on whether you have activated or confirmed location sharing, a route by car to the Spreewald Tourist Association will be displayed directly: Click here.

Arrival by train

The ODEG RE2 (Ostdeutsche Eisenbahn GmbH) runs hourly from Berlin to Cottbus with stops in Lübben, Lübbenau and Vetschau. It is also possible to travel to Cottbus by train from Dresden (RE 18) or Leipzig (RE 10). If you are planning a day trip from Berlin or Brandenburg to the Spreewald, it is a good idea to use a Brandenburg-Berlin ticket. It can be used by up to five people and is valid daily from 9:00 a.m. (weekdays) or 0:00 a.m. (weekends and public holidays) until 3:00 a.m. the following day. This way, you don't need an extra return ticket to Berlin for a day trip.
