Ski vacations Oberwiesenthal - winter fun at the Fichtelberg!
The Ore MountainsA natural border between Saxony and Bohemia, the Ore Mountain came into being around 300 million years ago and is one of Saxony's most famous holiday region. Surrounded by the Elbsandstein Mountains, the Vogtland and the Northern Bohemian Basin, the two highest peaks of the Ore Mountains just wait to be conquered: the Keilberg on the Czech side (1,244 m) and the Fichtelberg on the German side (1,215 m). .
The mining history of this region began in the 12th century with the first findings of the valuable ore after which the region was named. You will not find miners here any more, but mine shafts and tunnels can still be visited today. The hard work can still be felt and seen just like it was back 600 years ago, when miners worked day in day out underground without any daylight.
The beautiful nature offers well looked after hiking tracks as well as great pistes and cross-country trails. The Ore Mountains are a unique combination of relaxation and adventure holiday for young and old.
Oberwiesenthal is not far away from the Czech border and is Germany's highest town at an altitude of 914 m above sea level. One of the highest mountains of the Ore Mountain range, the Fichtelberg with 1,215 m, offers perfect conditions for alpine skiing fans. The Olympic region all around Oberwiesenthal is also popular with cross-country skiers.
Even though the place might seem quiet at first glance, it has a lot on offer not only when it comes to skiing but also with regards to leisure activities: hiking and nature lovers will enjoy the 20 km of tracks. Or how about a visit to the Ski and Local History Museum or the Martin-Luther Church? You can also gain valuable insights into local trades such as lace-making or wood craftsmanship. Several restaurants and guest houses invite you to spend a cosy evening with a diverse international and regional cuisine.
