The mountain village of Rehefeld-Zaunhaus is located 700 to 800 meters above sea level in the headwaters of the Wilden Weißeritz, away from major roads, surrounded by rustling spruce and beech forests. The houses are scattered along the wide and open valley. The hunting lodge of the former Saxon royal family will greets you from the hillside.
Rehefeld-Zaunhaus has been part of the region of Altenberg since 1994. In contrast to its eastern neighbors, it did not owe its foundation to mining. For the foundation of the place in the headwaters of the Wilden Weißeritz, was decisive the calm and remoteness of this beautiful valley.Rehefeld can be recommended as a right place to stay for those looking for rest, calm and relaxation. The pure mountain air, no disturbing traffic noise, just the silence. Rehefeld is not only a scenic place, but also has in winter mostly the best snow conditions, because it is the coldest valley in the Eastern Ore Mountains.
