The rich ore troves here long ago bestowed their name to the Erzgebirge (“Ore Mountains”). Shaped by a centuries-long mining industry, the Saxonian cultural landscape offers an untold variety of the most diverse opportunities for a wonderfully fulfilling vacation.
We would like to invite you to one of Germany’s most beautiful highland areas. Ever-changing landscapes, living history and singular, unmistakable traditions lend the Erzgebirge its singular charm.
Large areas of the Erzgebirge are now protected within the “Erzgebirge/Vogtland” nature preserve, which is home to rare plant and animal species.
Mysterious high moors in the peatlands, biotopes, dense forests, and deep ravines guarantee an authentic nature experience. Let the fragrance of the wild herbs growing on Erzgebirge´s meadows, rich in so many species, activate all your senses.
Somewhere here in Mother Nature’s garden there is a little herb sprouting just for you. Extensive well-marked trails offer the wonderful opportunity for your intensive communing with nature, the mining industry and local history.
