- Good to know

    Walking time 

    Cottbus has 2,102 km of streets and paths. If you wanted to walk them all, assuming you walked four kilometers an hour, eight hours a day, it would take you 66 days. And, when you need to get home there are 411 bus and tram stops, and subway and railway stations in Cottbus.


    Assuming that every kilometer of street in Cottbus has an average of 33 street lamps with 50W of power, then Cottbus has more than 69,377 street lamps, which use 3.5 megawatts of electricity per hour. Over a number of years, that adds up to the amount of energy produced by a volcanic eruption.

    Local recreation 

    With a total area of 2 square kilometers, public green spaces and parks make up 1.2% of Cottbus’s total area, 165 square kilometers. That means each of Cottbus’s 99,913 residents has an average of 20.2 square meters – less than most large Zoo animals!


    When people in Cottbus want to go out, they are spoilt for choice; the city has more than 181 cafés, restaurants, bars, ice-cream parlors, beer gardens, cinemas, nightclubs and theatres. If they were all lined up along a single street, it would need to be at least 1 km long.


    More than 147 sights and monuments, and far more than 378 retailers, mean there is plenty of sightseeing to do in Cottbus. Feeling tired? After a hard day visiting all the cultural attractions in the city, shopping or a night at the theatre, Cottbus offers more than 25 hotels, youth hostels and camp sites.
