Beach: The beach belongs to Filzteich beach, a swimming lake, the oldest reservoir in Saxony.
Swimming pool: The swimming pool 'Geithner Bad' with sauna and solarium is located right around the corner and is open everyday.
Local museum: Our museum gives a good overview of the art of wood carving that is widely spread in Schneeberg. Particularly impressive are the machine-driven native mountains that descript the life of a miner and the Christmas Mountains, which narrate the birth of Christ. So the museum is also well suited for smaller children.
The mountainous town Schneeberg is located in the western Ore Mountains, 20 km southeast of Zwickau, and 35 km southwest of Chemnitz. The interstate highways 93 and 169 run through it. Schneeberg is the first mountainous town at Silberstrasse, which runs from Zwickau Dresden. Through rich silver finds, the area was settled in 1471 and soon Schneeberg obtained city rights in 1481. The mining industry also played a significant role in the later centuries, which led to a certain degree of prosperity, which you can still see in the architecture of the town houses in the town centre. The gradual decline of the mining industry, the residents were looking for new sources of income and they found it in carving and lace-making. Many shops and the local museum in the town centre bear witness to this tradition. The symbol of Schneeberg is St. Wolfgang church with its famous altar of Lucas Cranach and the new Jehmlich Organ. The swimming lake Filzteich with beach is very popular in summer.
