Spreewald Gherkin Museum

Everything for the gherkins: If you want to find out what is behind the “Spreewald gherkin”, we recommend the private gherkin museum in Lehde. History and stories, from cucumber cultivation to cucumber processing and many collector’s items also bring old traditions back to life. Different pickled cucumbers can be tasted.

Every year in July the cucumber queen is elected here.
