Tips and suggestions for your stay in the region can be found here
When the weather is fine, the ridge of the East Ore mountain towers high above the Elbe Valley and the Bohemian Basin in the Czech Republic, visible even from the Saxon state capital, Dresden.
Sports recreation and tradition are at the top of the list of recreation seekers. International competitions regularly take place on the bobsleigh track in Altenberg or the biathlon arena in Zinnwald. As soon as the weather permits, the well-developed network of cross-country ski trails in the snow-covered winter forests is prepared. If the weather is too rough on the peaks, Germany’s oldest narrow-gauge railway, the Weißeritztal Railway invites you to take a romantic ride through the idyllic valley of the same name. In one of the mines, tourists can learn that the Erzgebirge was not given its name by chance. Every year in December, and sometimes even a little earlier, the entire Erzgebirge transforms into a single Christmas fairytale land. The tradition of wood carving is still alive today, for example in the toy country in Seiffen.
