DESTINATION & TOURISM

Key Facts, International Travel, and Things to Do

    Background

    Originally two separate towns of Hohenstein and Ernstthal, in 1898 these areas united to form Hohenstein-Ernstthal. Located 15 kilometres west of Chemnitz in Saxony, the town established itself in the 15th Century, largely due to the silver mines that were created nearby.

    The closest city to the area is Chemnitz which is the third-largest city in Saxony and is perfectly placed in the foothills of the Ore Mountains.
