The community lives out of itself, the active involvement of citizens leads to a self-confident approach to oneself, to the assumption of responsibility and local independence.
The Himmelsort Nebelschütz, called Njebjelčicy in Sorbian, is a village with around 1,200 Sorbian and German residents. In the five districts of the bilingual community, there are not only traces of the Sorbian language and culture. Above all, it is essential to bring rural life back into harmony with the environment bring. When Thomas Zschornak decided on the office of mayor shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the community underwent constant change. After about 30 years it becomes clear that it is possible to create local independence in terms of education, art and culture, but also sustainable economic activity and energy supply. Taking responsibility is the key to empowerment. For more than 15 years now, the community has opted for sustainable development. Giving something back to the earth and designing the rooms to be rich in species contributes significantly to increasing the quality of life.

History of the districts
The history of the five districts Nebelschütz (Njebjelčicy), Wendischbaselitz (Serbske Pazlicy), Miltitz (Miłoćicy), Piskowitz (Pěskecy) and Dürrwicknitz (Wěteńca) can be documented until the early 13th century (1225). The proximity to the St. Marienstern Monastery, founded in 1248, resulted in close political, economic and cultural-historical ties.
Stately three-sided courtyards, beautiful cottages and Christian monuments characterize the rural community area. The most impressive buildings are the parish church in Nebelschütz and the former manor in Piskowitz.
The Jauer (Jawora) stream meanders through Miltitz and Nebelschütz. It was dammed up between the two districts to form a considerable reservoir, which served anglers as an ideal hunting ground. However, this has been drained since 2005.
Sports centers form the sports area in Nebelschütz and the beautifully situated forest sports field in Piskowitz. Both facilities are used and managed by two active sports clubs. The strongest community club is the Sportgemeinschaft Nebelschütz e.V. (Sportowa jednotka Njebjelčicy z.t.) with 7 men's soccer teams.
In all parts of the village, numerous associations and individuals strive for active village life. Most of the time they act in the background. But they are an indispensable basis for a peaceful and content village community.
