"Annaberg is hilly. Very hilly." Annaberg Tip by Kathrin_E

Annaberg, Annaberg-Buchholz: 1 reviews and 5 photos

Annaberg is built on the slopes of Pöhlberg with many ups and downs. There is hardly any horizontal surface. The photos show a random selection of typical street views. This means walking the town requires moderate fitness. In case you have difficulties walking, investigate the city bus connections and carefully plan your routes.

There are four varieties of pavement in the old town of Annaberg: rough cobblestone, finer cobblestone, granite slabs with gaps in between, or a layer of tarmac on cobblestone with large holes where the cobblestone shows.
Wearing high heels would not be a good idea.

The train station is located down in the valley. The old town looks close on a map but you have to cope with a really steep slope where you'll encounter, depending which way you take, all four of the abovementioned varieties of pavement and some gravel in between. For rolling luggage this is a killer. Take the bus - although, unfortunately, the bus and train timetables do not match well and you'll have to wait a bit.
