Best Oberwiesenthal Hotels

Oberwiesenthal Hotels

In amongst the Ore Mountains, Oberwiesenthal is a winter sports paradise between December and March, with the pistes covered in thick powdery snow, with jumps and half pipes to challenge your skills. In the run up to Christmas this traditional town is particularly popular with tourists, with cosy German markets, candles in all the windows, and horse drawn sleigh rides through the snow. However, it's just as beautiful in the warmer months when the lush green valleys can be hiked or biked, and the balmy evenings can be spent at one of the town's music festivals or cultural events.

Things to see

The Ore Mountains that surround the town have 14 pistes of different abilities, and there's plenty of space to ski or snowboard even in the high season. The town hosts many competitive winter sports, with a luge track, exciting ski jumps, and cross country trails that can be explored when they're not hosting the professionals. This sporty town is always looking for new ways to enjoy their snowy slopes, with snow kites, snow tubing, and even winter biathlons taking place during the busy ski season. When the snow melts you can see the greenery underneath, and the sunshine brings out the wildflowers. This gives visitors plenty of space for hiking, with many trails of different ability levels, and if you go for the harder hikes then you'll be rewarded by the sight of bubbling brooks, wild ravines, and rare plants along the way. Mats are also laid along the trails for tubing, and kids love climbing up high before zooming down the hill on an inflatable tube.

Hotels in Oberwiesenthal

Oberwiesenthal has an excellent selection of 3 and 4 star hotels, and you can expect plenty of facilities to make your stay enjoyable. You can choose suites and guestrooms with sweeping mountain views, and many Oberwiesenthal hotels have family or adjoining rooms available. Many hotels have full service spas and health clubs where you can unwind after time on the slopes, as well as restaurants, business centres, saunas, and even games rooms for the kids to enjoy. Guestrooms are also well appointed, and you can enjoy amenities such as minibars, safes, flat-screen televisions, and private bathrooms with bathtubs and showers where you can relax after a long day.

Where to stay

The location of Oberwiesenthal close to the Czech Republic border means that there are influences from both countries, and when you go for some aprés-ski you'll find a wide selection of both Czech and German beers. In the cosy wood panelled restaurants, you'll also find cuisine from both areas, with lots of meaty dishes and warm dumplings piled on your plate. Many of the buildings are in typical ski lodge style, giving the town a traditional feel, and there are tall pine trees lining the streets. In the centre of town you'll also find a few useful shops selling ski and outdoor equipment set in the narrow streets.

How to get to Oberwiesenthal

Karlovy Vary airport is closest geographically, less than an hour away by car, although it has limited flights mainly to Eastern Europe. Václav Havel Airport in Prague is a more practical option, and is an hour and 40 minutes away, with flights arriving from major cities around the world. You can pre-book a cab from the airport, or one of the many airport shuttles, with extra services available during the ski season.
