Experience hiking happiness, mining traditions, automobile history and handicrafts

The Ore Mountains are considered one of the most beautiful landscapes of low mountains. Highest elevation is the 1.215-metre-high Fichtelberg in Oberwiesenthal. In summer, popular activities in the Ore Mountains are for example hiking holidays on the KAMMtour and mountain biking. In winter the mountains are a favoured destination for winter sports enthusiasts. The holiday region is also the homeland of nutcrackers, incense smokers,   Schwibbogen (candle arches) and the Christmas Pyramid. They are a product of Saxony's long mining history, which can be memorably experienced above and below ground along the "Silberstraße" (Silver Road). The route runs from Zwickau in the Western Ore Mountains to Dresden and connects the treasures on the surface and underground. The Mining Cultural Landscape Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří with its 17 Saxon and five Czech component parts is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the Ore Mountains there also stands the cradle of Saxon automobile manufacture. The success story began in Zwickau in 1904 thanks to August Horch. In the August Horch Museum the old state coaches are trying to outshine each other. Among them the legendary Trabant that was built here until 1991. With the composer Robert Schumann Zwickau achieved a worldwide reputation as a city of music.
