Popular Day-Trip Destination

© Kati Lange

The community of Machern is known not only for Machern castle and the landscaped gardens which stretch past its borders. The park at Schloss Püchau and the Lübschützer Teiche recreational area are also popular destinations.

The Stasi bunker in Machern is the only almost entirely preserved innovation management station of the former state security and belongs to the "Runde Ecke" Memorial Museum in Leipzig. The museum documents military activity by the former GDR Ministry of State Security and its tasks in the so-called "Spannungs- und Mobilmachungsfall".
