A very scenic 1767 hectare nature reserve with fish ponds that provide a sanctuary for breeding and visiting migratory birds.
Fischteiche in der Lewitz (former fish breeding lakes) were established as a Nature Reserve in 1938 and subsequently enlarged over the Soviet Occupation years by the locals of Lewitz in the area. Among the birds you can see are White-tailed Eagle, Osprey, Owls, Common Kingfisher, Common Crane, White Stork and different species of ducks, geese, swans and grebes. In Autumn you can observe many types of duck, geese, egret and small birds visit and pause on their migratory routes. The area has a wooden observation tower for photography.
