Warm, welcoming and a breath of fresh air; innovative and down-to-earth – welcome to the wonderful world of the Ore Mountains. A holiday in the Ore Mountains is a trip to the home of adventure.
On 20 October 2019 we cordially invite you to an unforgettable journey into the world of traditional crafts in the Ore Mountains.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the "Day of Traditional Craftsmanship" more than 120 craft workshops and manufactories open their doors for young and old throughout the Erzgebirge region and show the most diverse types of craftsmanship.
But not only - seeing and marvelling - but also taking part is on the programme. Whether you want to prick wood Trees, Lace making, make incense candles or grind precious stones... there is something for everyone!
Since 06.07.2019 the European-wide unique cultural landscape Montanregion Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří is UNESCO world heritage.
Nowhere else do so many mining witnesses invite you to experience history. With 22 components and over 400 individual objects on the German and Czech sides, Saxony and the Czech Republic have jointly applied for the title.
