From Leipzig: Day-Trip to the Ore Mountains

2. From Leipzig: 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 Ore Mountains. The art treasures and craftsmanship, the cultural landscape, the scientific institutions or even traditions and folk art of the Ore Mountains are unique in the world. Recently this has also been recognised by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Committee. Experience a varied day in the upper Ore Mountains, leaving from your pickup point in Leipzig. Your destination for the day is the mining town of Annaberg-Buchholz. Named after the patron saint of the miners, St. Anna, the church of the same name dominates the townscape of the town with its 20,000 inhabitants. On the way there you have the possibility to visit a wood artist in his workshop or to enter a visitor mine. Enjoy the wonderful views of mountain peaks and wildly romantic river valleys.

We had a perfect day with our guide Pedro! Pedro picked us up at the train station in Leipzig on time and was able to entertain us throughout the tour with his knowledge of the region (Pedro comes from the Ore Mountains!). The highlights of the tour were lunch with a view of the entire Ore Mountains and a visit to the mine in Annaberg-Buchholz. We would book a tour with Pedro again at any time and can recommend it to everyone!

This was a very nice day trip, the little shop that make Christmas wooden decoration gift shop was an interesting place to visit. Pedro the solo guide has good knowledge of the whole area and the trip was never bored. classic choir and nice music was played and explained. The visit to the mining place was interesting, but unfortunately it was not explained in English. We understand very little about the mine.

The tour was super individual. It was discussed very flexibly what should be looked at & if the schedule had shifted slightly, a new solution was always found. The transfer was perfect and the food was also very tasty and varied.

We had an excellent friendly and very well-read guide. Detailed information about the country and its people
