Being the highest-lying town of Germany (914m above sea level) automatically makes Oberwiesenthal something special.

The Fichtelberg, at 1215m, is the highest mountain in east Germany, and offers perfect conditions for athletes in winter as in summer. The Czech Keilberg (Klinovec), at 1244m is the highest mountain in the Erzgebirge (Ore mountains) and another important characteristic of the region. If you like being in nature, you have the following options to choose from during summer months: hiking, nordic walking, mountain biking, e-bike riding and Monsterroller riding. The landscape around Oberwiesenthal is one of a kind. Further highlights of the town are a steam locomotive and a cable car. The cable car is the oldest one in Germany, and transports passengers to the "Roof of the Erzgebirge" within minutes. The museum in "Wiesenthaler k3", which was newly opened in 2014, is a great attraction for winter sport enthusiasts and those who enjoy a more cultural experience.

Whether out in the fresh air doing some exercise, unwinding in the sauna or enjoying a delectable meal - here one can unwind body and soul and the everyday stress will soon become a thing of the past!
