„Witajće k nam – Welcome!”,

this is how we greet our guests in the middle of the picturesque old town of Budyšin – Bautzen. The area of the Ortenburg high above the Spree was once the tribal castle of the slavic tribe Milzener. Today the capital of Upper Lusatia is the cultural center of the Sorbs.

Take the opportunity and get to know the history and culture of the slavic minority who have lived here for more than a thousand years. From traditional costumes and customs to modern art and music, the exhibitions and events offer something for everyone.

We recommend our audio guide for adults and the entertaining video guide for children.




The Sorbian museum is sponsored by the foundation for the Sorbian people (Stiftung für das sorbische Volk), which annually grant benefits because of tax money based on the financial household decided by deputies of the parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany, the state parliament of Brandenburg (Landtag Brandenburg) and the state parliament of Saxony (Landtag Sachsen). The museum is also supported by the administrative district Bautzen (Landkreis Bautzen) and the cultural area Upper Lusatia-Lower Silesia (Kulturraum Oberlausitz-Niederschlesien). The Sorbian museum is an institution of the administrative district Bautzen.
