Full description
The wealth of the Wettin princes and the baroque splendour of Dresden would hardly be imaginable without the lavish income from ore mining in the Erzgebirge. The art treasures and craftsmanship, the cultural landscape, the scientific institutions or even the traditions and folk art of the Erzgebirge are unique in the world. Recently this has also been recognised by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Committee. Get to know the toy village Seiffen on the entertaining tour through the Ore Mountains. The production of wooden toys became the main occupation in the village after the end of mining. Here, almost 80 small family businesses compete in the production of wooden art; nutcrackers, smoking men, pyramids, hooped animals and much more are still largely made by hand here. A Seiffen wood designer leads you through her workshop. On the way to Freiberg, the first Saxon mining town, stop at the Saigerhütte Olbernhau. In former times, silver was elaborately extracted from copper ore here. Today the place is part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage. In Freiberg, discover the mining academy in the historical centre, the St. Marien Cathedral or the town houses at the Obermarkt. Enjoy local tastes in peace and quiet; snacks, drinks and specialities. On the return journey to Dresden, receive a short introduction to the mysterious Christmas customs of the locals. And of course all stations are embedded in a gently undulating low mountain range landscape.

Es war eine tolle Fahrt durch das Erzgebirge. Unser Guide Pedro hat uns etwas Abseits der befahrenen Strassen durch das Erzgebirge sicher befördert und dennoch alle wichtigen Orte im Erzgebirge angefahren. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns ,dass er uns viel über die Natur, die Menschen und Bräuche im Erzgebirge erzählt hat. So konnten wir uns viel besser in das Erzgebirge und seine Menschen hineinversetzen und auch eine andere Sichtweise erfahren. Nochmals vielen Dank an Pedro,immer wieder gerne mit Dir.Deine Tour ist absolut empfehlenswert !!!!
