The Mandau is a 40.9 km-long river in Bohemia and Saxony . It is a left tributary of the Lusatian Neisse, which it joins near Zittau.
It originates from multiple springs north of the 580.6m Wolf Mountain in the Šluknov Hook, which join in Panský at 1690 feet above sea level. Coming from Zahrady another stream joins in Nové Křečany . From there the Mandau flows in a southeasterly direction through Rumburk , Seifhennersdorf and Varnsdorf . Afterwards it flows eastwards through another part of Upper Lusatia in which the Lausur joins in Großschönau, from Hainewalde through the Roschertal to Mittelherwigsdorf, where the Landwasser joins, and finally it reaches Zittau where it flows east of the town 747 feet above sea level into the Lusatian Neisse.
