Slavic Fort Raddusch

Little remained of the Slavic fort of Raddusch, which was built by the Slavic tribe of the Lusizi in the late 9th/early 10th century.


Today, at the excavated original site, right on the edge of the former opencast mine Seese-Ost, an adaption of the fort is open for visitors.


The construction houses the 600 sqare meter permanent exhibition Archaeology in Lower Lusatia, regularly changing traveling exhibitions, and several other attractions such as a walkway through 12.000 years of regional landscape change, a restaurant, picnic areas, and a playground.


We offer guided tours for groups, which are also available in English. Please note that tours must be booked in advance. If you would rather explore the permanent exhibit on your own, you are more than welcome to pick up an audio guide at the museum store.

Activity based guided tours of the permanent exhibit are available to primary schools, youth groups and families. Tours for families with children are offered on selected days (Wednesday - Friday) in the nationwide school vacation time.


Our indoor and outdoor spaces can be used as a venue for business functions, company celebrations, family events and private parties. Please contact us to inquire about room capacities and rates.
