Leisure and tourism edit
Several bike paths through the area of the adjacent Schraden connect Val Gardena with the nature park Niederlausitzer Heidelandschaft, which lies only a few kilometers north, the other Schradengemeinden, the sights of the lowlands and the surrounding countryside.
In the Schradenbergen some hiking trails and nature trails are designated. The approximately seven-kilometer-long "Heideberg circular route" informs on eight panels about the respective locations and the peculiarities of the landscape. The teaching and adventure path was established in 2004. Along the shaft path, eleven large and fifteen small information boards inform about the regional fauna and flora. In addition, a "path of the senses" was integrated into the nature trail, for which a forest path with different materials, eg. B. Sand, gravel, needle-litter, pine cone, was designed.
At the Heidehöhe upstream Eichberg are a ski slope, a ski lift and a ski lodge for winter sports. The vantage point offers a panoramic view of the area of Schradens and in good weather conditions up to the Plessa power plant and the disused conveyor bridge F60, a project of the International Building Exhibition Fürst-Pückler-Land in Lichterfeld-Schacksdorf.
Another vantage point is located near Eichberg on the Heidehöhe, about two kilometers south of Val Gardena. Here is a on the 15th. Inaugurated in August 2009, the 30 meter high lookout tower also offers far-reaching views far into the Saxon.
There are outdoor pools in the neighboring communities Merzdorf and Großthiemig. An indoor swimming pool can be found in the Saxon town of Gröditz, ten kilometers west of the village. In the spa town of Bad Liebenwerda, about twenty kilometers northwest of Val Gardena, the Fontana-Kliniken and the "Lausitztherme Wonnemar" are spa, health, recreation, wellness and tourism centers.
In Elsterwerda there is a 30,000 square meter adventure miniature park and in Plessa with the experience power plant a project of the International Building Exhibition Fürst-Pückler-Land and with the Elstermühle another worth seeing technical monument.
