My first thought about beer brings me to my beloved Bavaria. Not this time, folks, not this time. This time the most refreshing beverage on the planet brings me to Saxony and the little town of Reinsdorf in the Ore Mountains.
Oh, back to the beer. That’s over in the village of Vielau at the Herrenhaus or manor house and brewery. Sit back, have a few brews, and you’ve pretty much got your day covered.
Maybe not, since Reinsdorf has a few other sites to do. So, maybe you should stay the night this way you can spend one day checking out all the beer and another checking the rest of town.
Reinsdorf (Saxony) — Top Areas Of Interest
Reinsdorf has a Local History and Mining Museum and the St. James Church that was built in 1889. Another church worthy of a look is the Sts. Peter & Paul Church; and the Röhrensteg brought fresh water to the town for generations.
In town there’s also a City Park with a miniature Railway and quite a few War Memorial. One is the Colombstein, dedicated to the French & Prussian battle in 1813, located at Freitagstraße and Dresdener Straße. Another is for the German/Prussian War with World War I and II added later.
Now that you’ve seen all this, go have another beer, this time find a beer garden and talk to the locals.
Have a good rest? Good, because Reinsdorf is on the western edge of the Ore Mountains so you know what that means. No? Oh, sorry, that means plenty of hiking and bicycling trails for you to see all the local plants, small local wildlife; maybe do some bird watching, too.
Nature is not for you? That means I’ll find you either back at the brewery or beer garden. ‘Coz, for sure, that’s where you’ll find me. ;-)
