Golßen is situated on the edge of the Glogau-Baruth glacial valley, the Lower Fläming, and the Lusatian Heathland and basin. The surrounding area was marshland centuries ago, so it’s no surprise that green in all shades is the color of Golßen.
The Dahme River flows northward and is located not far from the city. The Golßen estate had fish ponds built not far from the city limits, which are fed by the Dahme River and are now cherished by all nature lovers.
North of Golßen, the “Gehmlitz” forms an area full of dunes in irregular and parabolic shapes. There are several such areas located along the B115 highway between Golßen and Lübben that offer wonderful scenery for hikers.
