From the castle in Bad Muskau, we can go on a beautiful walk through the local English park along the Lužická Nisa river. Thanks to the bridges and the possibility of free border crossing, we can enjoy a walk on both sides of the river, i.e. both in Germany, Saxony and Poland

View of the castle in Muskau

We start the walk at the castle in Muskau, so we can see it for a while before it disappears behind the trees

Bridge over the Lužická Nisa

After a while we come to the bridge over the Lužická Nisa. Here we cross the border and enter Poland

Miniature rapids

Just beyond the bridge you will come across miniature rapids, but otherwise the flow of the river is very gentle and the whole surrounding landscape is very picturesque. But if you want to explore more, then a bike is more ideal – especially the Polish side of the park is quite vast.

The bridge to the other side

After about 15 minutes of walking, from the beginning of the walk, we can already see the second bridge over which we will return back to Saxony.

English bridge

After the so-called English Bridge, we will cross back to Germany. A few more attractions await us in the castle park

Eichsee waterfall

The castle park was conceived in the era of romanticism, so an artificial waterfall cannot be missing

Right next to the waterfall is the picturesque lake Eichsee

Park around the Eichsee lake

The path continues past a picturesque lake and further along an artificial water channel that distributes water throughout the park

Plattenwasserfall

The second waterfall in the park – Plattenwasserfall, is really impressive. A few tens of meters behind it is already a castle, and our short, roughly three-kilometer walk is over.
