The bilingual Lusatian metropolis of Cottbus can look back on over 850 years of city history. The historical city centre with its baroque town houses and the State Theatre built in late Art Nouveau are evidence of this and invite you to discover. High-quality cultural offers make a stay in Cottbus an experience at any time of the year. At the same time Cottbus presents itself as one of the greenest cities in Germany - with a band of extensive parks, avenues and promenades along the Spree. The Spreeauenpark and the Fürst-Pückler-Park Branitz with its unique earth pyramids fascinate countless visitors every year.

The Cottbus Service is the official tourist service provider of the city of Cottbus and the largest ticket agency in Cottbus.
