You can get to know the rich history of Eilenburg through guided tours in the museum and in the cellars, located on the hill in the city center.
Eilenburg is a small town with approx. 17.000 inhabitants, situated on the border of the „Duebener Heide“ and approximately 25km from Leipzig. Its rich history of over thousand years makes it easy to call it one of the cradles of Saxony. The rule of the Wettins-Dynasty beginning with the Earl of Ilburg in the 11th century continued until 1918. Part of their territory is the state of Saxony today.
In medieval times and during industrialization Eilenburg was a rich city. At the time of Martin Luther, its main business was brewery and in the 19th century, it was a national center of textile industries. However, Eilenburg was devastated several times in its history. In April 1945, Eilenburg was almost completely destroyed. The only evidence of former rich times that remained is the „Sorbenturm“ as a remaining part of the Ilburg. It is estimated that it was built in the 12th century at the highest part of the 220m x 150m plateau. A loop footpath outside the castle wall connects the „Sorbenturm“ with the „Amtshaus” (deanery), the former county court. This path was renovated with the help of the volunteers in the last workcamps.
You should bring sleeping bags and camping mats. It is necessary to bring work clothes, raingear and sturdy shoes.-Special notes on the COVID 19 pandemic-
Due to the pandemic and the associated restrictions, the work camp may be cancelled in the worst case. We ask you to keep an eye on developments and to buy tickets to the workcamp only after a final confirmation.
