The best Places to visit in Altenberg

The best places to visit in the Altenberg recreational area.

 

And there is a lot to discover here in the Eastern Ore Mountains.

A visit to the Osterzgebirgsmuseum Schloss Lauenstein and the famous Church in Lauenstein, a tour of the mining museum in Altenberg with the exhibition  and the historical tin washing, which is unique in Europe, as well as an underground tour of the Zinnwald-Georgenfeld visitor mine, all of which are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Erzgebirge-Krusnohori Mining Region.

Excursions to the Osterzgebirge wildlife park, the botanical garden in Schellerhau, the Georgenfelder bog-moor are also highly recommended. The pure nature with flora and fauna of the Eastern Ore Mountains is brought closer to all interested visitors.

An excursion destination that is particularly popular with families is the Altenberg ski and toboggan arena with the summer toboggan run - by the way, the longest in  whole Saxony, with devalkarts, adventure playground, monster scooters, climbing labyrinth and many other attractions

For all railway fans, a ride on the Weißeritztalbahn,  is just as indispensable as a ride on the Müglitztalbahn. But that's not all. In the wider area of ​​the holiday region, trips to the Glashütte clock museum, the nutcracker museum in Neuhausen are just as recommended as the small galleries in Bärenstein and Schellerhau or the small local museums in Altenberg and Bärenstein.

Explore the wooded surroundings and the well-developed network of hiking and cycling trails on foot or by bike, while enjoying the peace and quiet and the clean mountain air. The path takes you to the wonderful viewpoints such as the Geisingberg, Kahleberg or the Kohlhaukuppe.

We will be happy to help you personally arrange your stay.
