The history of Bitterfeld-Wolfen is closely linked to the industrialization of Central Germany. The main focus was on the chemical industry and the energy sector, based on accelerated mining of local lignite deposits. After the political turnaround in 1989, a fundamental ecological rehabilitation of the Bitterfeld industrial region took place, the development of what is today a very efficient industrial park and the creation of wonderful recreational landscapes. The astonishing structural transformation from an ecologically severely damaged region with ailing factories to a green industrial city on the lake is increasingly attracting international attention.
