The culture and traditions of the Sorbs are upheld in the bilingual area between Bautzen, Kamenz, Hoyerswerda and Schleife. The ideal occasion to experience Sorbian customs up-close are holidays, but their traditions also shape everyday life. The one-of-a-kind bilingual theatre “Deutsch-Sorbisches Volkstheater” in Bautzen regularly stages plays in German and Sorbian. The Sorbian National Ensemble, also from Bautzen, is a regular guest on international stages.
Discover Sorbian culture at “Sorbisches Kulturzentrum Schleife”, located only 14 km from our hotel. A permanent exhibition presents traditional costumes, Sorbian techniques for Easter egg decoration and Sorbian legends. Groups can book a tour that starts with a bread and salt welcome ceremony and highlights Sorbian history, language, traditions and costumes.
