Lagow is a village at the centre of the Lubuskie Lake District, in the west of Poland. It is a picturesque location popular with many tourists, not only from Poland and Germany, but from all over Europe. The town of Lagow is located next to two lakes, Trzesniowskie and Lagowskie, which are great for swimming, fishing and water sports. Lagow's proximity to the nearby E-30 road (one of the better roads in Poland!), and location half way between Poznan (Poland) and Berlin (Germany) make it ideally located for tourists wishing to see something of this beautiful part of Poland.
Lagow has a number of historic buildings including:
- a well-preserved 15th century castle built by the Knights of St John (the Teutonic Knights Templars). The castle, is now converted into a luxury hotel and restaurant, and has a 35m high tower, a Gothic pillared hall and a knights' hall complete with a Baroque fireplace from 1740.
- 15th century defensive walls and two gates
- a conical tower from the 14th century on top of the nearby 'Sokola Gora' Hill.
Lagow itself makes a wonderful place for a vacation. Anyone with a liking for swimming, diving, fishing, boats, water sports, and fine food should try and pay it a visit. Lagow is home to a number of good restaurants and the excellent castle hotel. Lagow also stages the well-known Lubusz film festival, a Jazz and Blues music festival, and a motorcycle event every summer.
