Altenberg Hotels

The traditional Saxony town of Altenberg is set in the Ore Mountains, close to the Czech Republic border, and it's famous for its world-class facilities for bob-sleighing, luge, and skeleton, with many major competitions taking part here. Ski season also sees many visitors coming in to enjoy the powdery snow, and there are a small selection of trails for skiers and snowboarders. In the warmer seasons there's still plenty to explore outside, with diverse plant life, and plenty of walking trails that can be enjoyed in the fresh air.

Things to see

Many visitors come here for the luge tracks, with training facilities for professionals, as well as plenty of fun activities for casual riders. This is open year round, and once the snow falls you'll often see competitions taking place along the icy trails. Close to town are the small, yet well-maintained ski trails, and this is a perfect spot to learn or get some practice in, with lots of families teaching their kids to ski before they go off to bigger resorts. There are also many outdoor spaces to be explored, such as the Great Pinge, which is a huge collapsing mine shaft with interesting rock formations, and the botanical gardens which make the most of the biodiversity of the area. Altenberg Mining Museum is also an interesting spot to find out more about the history of the area, with an underground tour route carved through the rocks.
