From Dresden: Day-Trip to the Ore Mountains

7. From Dresden: Day-Trip to the Ore Mountains

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.

You learned something different from Dresden than just standing there and that with a lot of humor from the night watchman. From its cultural side, the baroque quarter doesn’t have to hide because, in my opinion, it can clearly keep up with the "old town". The nice thing about this tour is that you discover places that you don't expect from the new town. therefore only my recommendation applies here for this tour you have to experience it once.

We were very enthusiastic about the 1 1/2 hour night watchman tour through Dresden's Neustadt. You really got to know many corners of Neustadt that you didn't know about before. The night watchman conveyed a lot of information in a very funny way, great fun listening to him.

The night watchman loves and lives his role very authentically and gave us an amusing and informative evening - even though there were only two of us. So we could get to know Dresden from another side and would definitely do the tour again. Thanks for the great experience!

With this tour we came to hidden backyards with breathtaking flair, individual shops, bars and wine bars that we would never have found ourselves. A veteran of night watchmen made this tour a fun and educational discovery tour. Thanks a lot for this!

The night watchman is a funny fellow who brings his knowledge about the new town of Dresden in an interesting way. He showed us great places in winding alleys that we would never have discovered. We recommend!*****
