The sponsor association has looked after the visitor information centre (VIC) at the Bad Liebenwerda nature reserve building since December 2006. It publishes the nature reserve calendar and assists with the annual competition for the “Nature Reserve Community” title. It also participates in various projects which help to further develop the nature reserve, such as the capercaillie project. The sponsor association is a non-profit organisation.

Elstermühle Plessa

The sponsor association is based at the Elstermühle Plessa, which was opened to the public as a Technical Cultural Monument in 1995 following extensive restoration work of the landmarked building and reconstruction of the flour mill. Tours are possible upon prior registration. The office spaces are today used by the sponsor association, as well as by the Brandenburg park rangers. Seminar rooms are available for training sessions and presentations.

The mill tavern completes the complex with its rustic and romantic atmosphere.

Gourmets should definitely stop by for a bite to eat and indulge themselves in a menu comprising delicious fish dishes from the region. Also highly recommended is the Steinofenbrot (bread baked in a stone oven) prepared on-site. The wedding chamber set up in the mill makes the best day of your life even more unforgettable.
