The Western side of the Ore Mountains borders on the Vogtland. It is geographically more strongly structured than the eastern part of the Ore Mountains.
It is characterized by high steps and deep forest valleys. The highest elevation of the Erzgebirge is the Fichtelberg with 1214 meters above sea level and the Auersberg which lies 1019 meters above sea level. On the Czech side, there is the Keilberg which lies 1244 meters above sea level.
Just like the entire Ore Mountain range, the West Ore Mountains benefited from rich silver finds at the end of the 15th century. Famous mountain towns such as Schneeberg and Annaberg emerged.
The Ore Mountain area is also known for its lace-making and the production of handmade wood products as well as the art of mining.
At the end of the 20th century, the mining industry was boosted again by uranium mining in the West of the Ore Mountains.
