First mentioned as "Swartzenbergk" in a document in 1282, this historic town can look back on an eventful history, featuring mining, knights, a wood and cardboard processing industry and railways. Plus, there’s the stunning landscape of the Ore Mountains and, last but not least, a unique lace-making tradition, which add to Schwarzenberg’s very special charm.
The completely renovated Erlahammer Manor is part of the Rother Berg mining district and belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Mining Region Erzgebirge / Krušnohorí. During the tour of the exhibition "From the oldest iron hammer to the modern age", visitors can immerse themselves in the interesting mining history of the village and the region.
The underground world opens up in a particularly impressive way in the largest tin chambers in Europe. The mine train takes visitors on an exciting 3,000-meter ride into this unique testimony to the eventful history of mining and the professional skills of the miners in the Schwarzenberg district of Pöhla. Glück auf!
The former Schwarzenberg depot with its impressive locomotive shed is now home to the Schwarzenberg Railway Museum. Numerous steam and diesel locomotives of various series, historic wagons and railroad trabants and much more can be admired here, e.g. at the annual Schwarzenberg Railroad Days.
