This winter, you can take part in a special sporting event in the Erzgebirge mountains in Saxony. The Oberwiesenthal winter golf festival (Wintergolftage) is being held from 23 to 25 January 2015 at a specially created six-hole snow golf course. While you play, you can enjoy panoramic views of the scenery around Mount Fichtelberg. The event in Oberwiesenthal, Germany's highest town, promises plenty of sporting highlights as well as excellent food and drink away from the golf course. So, what are you waiting for!
There are many reasons to visit the Erzgebirge mountains. This region of eastern Germany is known for its traditional crafts, such as nutcrackers and incense burners, its mining heritage, which you can discover on the Saxon-Bohemian Silver Mines Route, and its fantastic walking trails, which include the Erzgebirge-Vogtland Ridge Trail.
