Municipal arrangement

The municipality of Jänschwalde-Janšojce is divided into three parts: Jänschwalde-Dorf Kolonie Jänschwalde East


Jänschwalde-Dorf (village) is separated from Kolonie by a small brook called Puschanitzka. It flows through a field between the two districts. In the village there is a tavern called K5. Not far away from there is a small store and a place called the Jugendbude, for the young people of the village. Near the store and the Jugendbude is the village church, which was built in 1806/07. In the nearby belltower there are three bells from the 15th and 16th centuries. Also next to the church is the German-Sorb Museum, which details the area's past.


In Kolonie (colony) the inhabitants have a butcher, a store, a post office, and a restaurant—the brewery Zur Linde. The cemetery is also located in Kolonie.

Jänschwalde East

Three kilometers into the forest is East Jänschwalde, which was established in 1952 as a housing development for the soldiers of the nearby air base. Here there are mostly new buildings, including a primary school and a kindergarten. There is also das Ländliche Sozio-kulturelle Zentrum (the Rural Socio-Cultural Center), which serves as a meeting place for young and old. Activities there include crafting afternoons, a library, and sport programs, such as judo. East Jänschwalde is also connected to the public railroad network through the Regional Express line from Cottbus to Frankfurt (Oder).
