The city of Cottbus is the second biggest city in the federal state of Brandenburg in East-Germany. It lies in the center of a triangle between the anchor points Berlin (around 100 km northwestern), Zielona Góra (around 100 km northeastern) and Dresden (around 90 km southwestern).
The city’s name originates from the Wendish language. Cottbus is essentially the political and cultural center of the Sorb population in Lower Lusatia (German: Niederlausitz, Lower Sorbian Area).
The city itself has around 100.000 inhabitants and the only technical university in the federal state of Brandenburg, making it a administrative, service and science hub in the south of Brandenburg.
A wide array of monuments and sights from different ages, various parks (remarkable ones like the Branitz park with its famous castle and pyramids) in- and outside the city, conserved old city walls, a carefully reconstructed Altmarkt (central city market) and places of interest like the university’s library or the Staatstheater Cottbus make a visit to the city worthwhile.
