This district of the region Altenberg is traditionally very closely connected with Oberbärenburg. Both places differ significantly in their characteristics.
While Oberbärenburg is at the height (approx. 750m above sea level), the Waldbärenburg, with around 30 inhabitants only, is embedded in the romantic valley of the Rote Weißeritz (approx. 600m above sea level). Characterized by the typical Ore Mountains cosiness, a hotel with an inn and small guest houses offer guests a worthwhile destination.
