It is the site of a border crossing on the main road connecting Bad Freienwalde, Germany with Chojna, Poland (formerly the German town of Königsberg in der Neumark). The adjacent Polish village is called Osinów Dolny - which, when it used to be part of Germany, was called Niederwutzen; the toponyms Hohen- and Nieder- indicate "upper" and "lower" respectively. The name of the Polish settlement is a calque of the old German name.
