From the devil and his oxen now to the true historyhistory of the Spreewald.
The snow water of the last Ice Age washed sand into the Â“Baruther river valleyÂ” and formed watering places and also many small sand islands, the so-called "Kaupen". The slope of the Spree reduced itself more and more and over the time sophisticated water net formed itself. This lowland field was 75 kilometers longlong and up to 16 kilometers broad. These river arms of the Â“SpreeÂ” which are 970 kilometers long are now the Spreewald.
