  • The Hexentanzplatz requires a visit in any case. The great sculptures alone are worth the visit. We were very excited and made naturally beautiful photos. Then quickly for whistling wind a look on the opposite Rosstrappe, and if you're lucky, like us, then still a beautiful Rainbow that spanned the Valley and then can satisfied again the journey home to compete. Long time we have discussed then the beautiful sculptures and with the details.

  • The city has a charming touch of time as DDR-city. There is also a DDR-museum on 6. floor of a large design. Two lifts (a cabin lift and a chair lift) can be taken up to the nearest two mountains (remember cash). In one, you can bring your mountain bike and cycling back down again (use the chairlift with hooks for the bikes behind). The second lift leads up to an area with wildlife park, "witches Castle" and the scene where (probably most in summer) is entertainment. Plenty of hiking opportunities and well-signposted everywhere. In the area where the lifts start, there is a great "tivoli-esque" playground. Also trætopklatring can be experienced here.
