If you would like to learn something about the historical development of the city of Cottbus and the surrounding region, the Cottbus City Museum is the place to go. Here you can experience the traces left by the great fires in the city and how exactly lignite actually came into being. The residences of the lords of Cottbus and also the Wendish language have found their place in the city museum. Wendish is a language that came to us with the Sorbs as early as the 6th century.
The city museum and the city archive combine to form the Cottbus municipal collection. This provides optimal access for both citizens and researchers in the field of local history and historical research. The Cottbus City Museum has both a permanent exhibition and changing special exhibitions. The permanent exhibition, which always remains the same, deals with the history of Cottbus from about 550 million years ago to the present day. Topics such as the Reformation, the great fires in the city, the period of industrialisation, the two world wars and, of course, the period of the GDR bear witness to the city's development.
