Whether you are visiting Schwarzenberg for a short break from the hustle and bustle of city life, or taking a long relaxing and restful retreat, you are sure to enjoy your stay. The locals are friendly and will do everything they can to make sure your stay is a pleasant one.
A stay in Schwarzenberg is a stay in a land of beautiful landscapes. It is located perfectly amidst the gorgeous mountains and rolling hills right along the Erzgebirge, or Ore Mountains. It is also in the scenic nature reserve Vogtland.
You know what that means… You can go hiking and enjoy the splendid panoramic view, feel nature at its purest, and get to know the heart of Schwarzenberg. Take any of the many well-marked regional and national hiking paths, as well as any of the numerous trails that will take you through the varied history of the city.
One of the best things about Schwarzenberg is the variety. You can spend the morning in a castle, spend the afternoon in the Ore Mountains, and have a pleasant evening in an unforgettable restaurant. The unique history that Schwarzenberg is known for is evident everywhere.
The history of the town is rooted in its mining past, and you can clearly see it even today. Along with the traditional mining museum, go ahead and explore restored castles and the railway museum. The restored castles not only provide insights into the history of the city but you’ll also experience the wonderful views of the surrounding region.
The railway museum is one of the largest collections of railway vehicles in Saxony. It is a standing testimony to the technological and economic development of the region. Experience life as it was driving under steam power along the many railways of Germany.
All in all, Schwarzenberg is a great place to visit and it will be hard to regret a stop there on your travels through Germany (or perhaps you choose to stay longer than expected, as more than 18,000 people do).
