Eisenhuttenstadt, Germany
Eisenhüttenstadt is a town in the Oder-Spree district of Brandenburg, Germany at the border with Poland. It is located on the Oder river in the Berlin-Warsaw glacial valley and is surrounded by terminal moraine hills to the south and pine forests. The Oder-Spree canal flows into the Oder in the town. Eisenhüttenstadt is located 25 km south of Frankfurt (Oder), 25 km north of Guben and 110 km east of Berlin.

Eisenhüttenstadt is a neat city. Unlike other German cities with histories that stretch back for centuries, Eisenhüttenstadt (meaning Iron Forge City) is only fifty years old. It was planned and created by the newly formed East German government to house workers for the EKO steel concern that was being built nearby.
