Lübben is a quaint little town. But the people of Lübben do get melancholy when reminded how it used to look before the war. Even more quaint, in fact. To get the recent developments of tourism truly off the ground, the local "Spreewald Association" called on the locals to partake in beautification efforts of the community in the early 1930s. The city was spruced up, new paths created, and the banks of the Spree river courses adorned with plants. Painted signposts with lovely carvings were set up so that everyone knew about these efforts and so that the tourists from Berlin could find their way. These signs showed the way to "Coffee Schulze" and to the "Barge departure spot". And, this really had to be said: "Lübben is a quaint little town." Elisabeth Kriesmann designed the signposts as a singing competition between the accordion player and the nightingale. By 1945, not only had large parts of the city of Lübben been reduced to rubble. Many of the signposts also did not survive those days. The displayed signpost is a replica, manually produced by a Polish wood carver. Why it was not set up again and instead placed in the Lübben Museum - we simply don't know.
