"ErzgebirgsCard" Kurort Oberwiesenthal Favorite Tip by Kathrin_E

Kurort Oberwiesenthal General: 2 reviews and 6 photos


Favorite thing: This discount card is of interest to visitors who want to see a lot in the area. This card offers free entry to about 100 attractions all over the Ore Mountains region. Due to the distances between these places you'll only be able to use a fraction of these. Anyway, with some planning it pays.

There are two varieties available: one which is valid for 48 hours (22 ? for adults and 11 ? for kids 6-14) and one which is valid for any 4 days in 14 (33 ? for adults, 16 ? for kids 6-14). The latter is really useful for longer stays, as you can select the days when you use it.

Unfortunately the information on the website is only available in German! The card can be ordered in advance through this website but there is no need to bother with that and pay postage - you can just as well buy it on the spot at a tourist information office or at the cash desk of the participating attractions.

Fondest memory: For a day trip to Oberwiesenthal the ErzgebirgsCard is definitely worthwhile. It includes the ride on the narrow gauge railway from Cranzahl to Oberwiesenthal and back (otherwise 12 ?), the cable car up Fichtelberg (otherwise 6 ?), the chair lift (otherwise 6 ? - well you'll prbably use only one of these two), admissionto the viewing tower and museum (otherwise 2 ?), a ride with the post carriage through the town (otherwise 6 ? - but unfortunately the thing runs only on two or three days per week), one ride on the summer luge (otherwise 3 ?)... well, do the maths.
