The municipality of Muldestausee lies within the Düben Heath Nature Park, 35 km south of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. Formerly frowned upon because of lignite mining and its consequences for the land and the people, the region around the Mulde Reservoir and Lake Goitzsche today offers a recreational landscape with a special charm. The municipality of Muldestausee is a good point of departure for excursions into the Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg WorldHeritageRegion.

In 2010, thirteen towns were merged to form the Muldestausee Municipality, working together to transform the former industrial landscape into a leisure and recreational landscape.
Starting from the municipality’s towns, one can conveniently set out on a number of trips. A pilgrim route on the trail of Martin Luther leads through the Düben Heath, and monuments of a bygone industrial past like the shaft huts line a route called Coal | Steam | Light. The Red Tower in Pouch offers a far-reaching view over the surrounding area and the antiquarian bookstores of Mühlbeck-Friedersdorf, the first German book village, excite bookworms. During the warmer months of the year, visitors can have a rest at the bathing lakes and enjoy diverse cultural events. Numerous family-friendly apartments offer lots of space for vacation stays with kids around the new lakeland area.
