And my answer:

change the applied page style!

Your installation should have a page style called "Landscape" - do as described and double click that.

Define a page style (F11, select pages styles tab, right click Default, select New, select the Page tab and set Orientation to Landscape, select the Organizer tab and set Next style to Default. Click OK.
Put your cursor at the bottom of the page before the page you want to be in landscape. Insert - Manual break - tick Page, select your new style in the Style list box. Click OK.
