The small village Lehde located in the center of the marshes and the Spreewald canal network, in the Upper Spree Forest-Lusatia District of Brandenburg, Germany.
The village is the center of tourism in the Spreewald – bicycle and kayaking trails intersect here, and numerous flat-bottomed boats depart from here to transport tourists along the Spreewald canals. In the tourist-oriented Lehde there are many restaurants and small guesthouses. There is also a craft business that has been producing Spreewald barges since 1884.

- Until 1931, there were no paved roads leading to the village, and the best way to get there was by boat -in winter, the role of roads was taken over by frozen canals.
- The Lehde Open Air Museum with three historic Spreewald farms is also particularly important. It is the oldest open-air museum in Brandenburg.
