The health resort of Kipsdorf is part of the region of Altenberg. The Weißritztalbahn, the longest-serving narrow-gauge railway in Germany, puffs daily from Freital-Hainsberg up into the Eastern Ore Mountains to Kipsdorf.
In the deeply cut valley of the Roten Weißeritz, surrounded by the steep, wooded mountain slopes of the Tellkoppe (757m) and the Hohen Brandes (661m), you will find the resort Kipsdorf, part of the region of Altenberg since 1996. The location in the valley arised together with the development of roads and railways trails. The Weißeritztalbahn, the longest-serving narrow-gauge railway in Germany, has been panting from Freital-Hainsberg up to the  Kipsdorf since 1883. The railway track was severely damaged by the  floods in August 2002. After the extensive reconstructions,  the first train has been coming to  Kipsdorf railway station in June 2017.

The representative terminus station, with the largest reception hall of Germany's narrow-gauge railways, was expanded into a community center after 2002. A tourist information office, a bowling alley, sports and club rooms as well as our local museum invite residents and guests to sporting and cultural events. The historical character of the listed building has been preserved. The older part of the village, founded by settlers around 1500, is Oberkipsdorf (about 600m). An extensive network of hiking trails around Kipsdorf invites you to go on excursions into the beautiful nature.
