Unique location


Our hotel is located not far from the motorway exit Stollberg-West A72.

The large district town of Stollberg is the gateway to the Ore Mountains on their northern edge. The most important trade route to Prague, the "Bohemian Trail", led through Stollberg in the Middle Ages. Only St. Mary's Church still bears witness to Stollberg's medieval layout. Built around 1240, it is the symbol of the town's seal and coat of arms.


The Ore Mountains - land of castles and palaces, picturesquely situated in the valley of the Zschopau, they exude their romantic flair and breathe the spirit of times gone by. High-altitude air and sun favour the regeneration effect of our guests.

Wide valleys and mountain ridges offer impressive views over enclosed forest areas. Pure idyll and nature experience, in summer and winter.

Varied low mountain landscapes with clear mountain streams, rare birds and other wildlife, plants and minerals and amazing sights make it a popular destination for the nature lover and those who want to give everyday life a soul.

Thanks to its central geographical location, our hotel is the ideal starting point for excursions and other activities. From quiet rural living, our guests can easily reach the vibrant metropolises of Saxony, sometimes within a few minutes by car.

Chemnitz - the city of modernity, with all the possibilities of a big city, from shopping to theatre visits. But there are also sights and experiences to be had at Klaffenbach moated castle, a historical gem in an idyllic rural setting.


Freiberg, the mining capital of Saxony with the oldest mining university, the oldest municipal theatre, the most melodious and largest Silbermann organ and the largest collection of minerals in the world, the first gas lantern on the European continent and and and ...

Meissen, cathedral city and bishopric since 986, in whose world-famous manufactory tableware and figurine porcelain has been produced since 1710.


Dresden, the state capital with an Electoral Saxon and royal flair, which has made the city the Florence on the Elbe and a World Heritage Site. The Elbe Sandstone Mountains around Dresden with their wild rocky landscape offer unforgettable impressions.

In the opposite direction, you can quickly reach the automobile and Robert Schumann city of Zwickau. St. Mary's Cathedral is the most prominent landmark in the centre. Inside it is the Wolgemut Altar. It is one of the most important altars in Saxony, not only because of its width of 7 metres. A unique ambience: in a modern city, the visitor can nevertheless feel the breath of the Gründerzeit and even of the old patricianism, which became rich and powerful through the trade in Zwick's red cloth.


In the town of Lichtenstein, the Daetz Centre offers an exhibition that is unique in the world. In the castle palace, visitors can experience a world tour of a special kind through five continents on the basis of over 650 fascinating masterpieces of wood sculpture.

Our guests reach the Thuringian countryside via motorway or main road. Skatstadt Altenburg, Wünschendorf with its covered wooden bridge dating from 1786 or Veitsberg with its over 1000-year-old church are well worth a visit.

Burg Gnandstein

Leipzig is also easy to reach. With a little more time in your luggage, we recommend following in the footsteps of Napoleon and his Grande Armee. Through the lovely Kohrener Land and its impressive landmark Gnandstein Castle, Saxony's best-preserved fortification from Romanesque times.

Leipzig - a trade fair metropolis since the 13th century. However, the city of half a million people is not only world-famous for its trade. Goethe's Dr Faust rode through the air here on a barrel. In 1813 Napoleon's troops, accustomed to victory, were crushed for the first time in the "Battle of the Nations". Climbing the Monument to the Battle of the Nations is one of the ritual acts on a visit to the city. Leipzig's sophisticated flair is reflected in its spacious glass-roofed promenades and promenades, the Central Stadium, the historic Gewandhaus, the zoo, St Thomas's Church and much more.


It is not for nothing that people speak of the silver Ore Mountains. The mining of silver and other ores once made the Saxon electors immensely rich. A museum tour along the Silver Road, Saxony's first holiday route, is highly recommended. You can experience 800 years of mining culture pleasantly by car. Along the Silver Road there are show mines where the "exploration" has the character of an expedition and thus makes for wonderful, lasting memories.

The mining museum in neighbouring Oelsnitz is one of the largest in Europe. It presents the former coal mining in our region. From its unique winding tower you can look out over the Ore Mountains and the northern Saxon countryside.

One of the most spectacular events in Saxon history was undoubtedly the kidnapping of the two sons of Elector Frederick II by the Junker Kunz von Kauffungen. This extraordinary act, which has gone down in history as the "kidnapping of the princes", has lost none of its popularity over the centuries. In the immediate vicinity of our house, historical witnesses such as the Princes' Cave or Stein Castle still remind us of this Renaissance kidnapping.

For those who want it even more (ore)mountainous, there are secrets to discover around the Auersberg. The cultural centres of Eibenstock or Marienberg await you with, among other things, Saxony's largest adventure pools with a giant slide, children's paradise, sauna area, wave pool and water whirlpool.

Our guests can experience the Ore Mountains at the top in the spa town of Oberwiesenthal, the highest town in Germany and home to Saxony's most successful winter athletes. Whether by cable car or lift, the trip up the Fichtelberg (1215m) is always worthwhile.


However, the highest elevation of the Ore Mountains can be found in the Czech Republic, the Klinovec (Keilberg) at 1244m. Other destinations in the Czech Republic are a stone's throw from Oberwiesenthal.

There is probably no other region where Christmas is celebrated with such an ancient, soulful glitter and with such loyal heartfeltness as in the Erzgebirge. Ancestral customs are still honoured there: Baking stollen, slaughtering geese, going to Metten and secretive festive rules of all kinds. Woodcarving - a tradition of the Erzgebirge - is presented with lighted angels, miners, rotating pyramids and candle arches. Angels and miners thematise the Christmas message, bear witness to the art of wood carving and the piety of the miners, who for centuries have been exposed to the dangers and imponderables of the darkness of deep shafts.


In the cradle of the now world-famous nutcrackers and smoking men, however, woodturning, lace-making and carving are popular at all times of the year. Come and see for yourself in the world-famous toy village of Seiffen, the centre of Erzgebirge wood crafts. Lovers and collectors will always find new treasures made of wood here.
