Culture, Tourism & Leisure
The municipality is the starting point to discover the attractive cultural landscape of Saxony and the beauties of the north edge of the Ore Mountains.
We can recommend the visit in all museums and castles in this area, e. g. Burg Rabenstein, Chemnitzer Industriemuseum, as well as Schloss Augustusburg, with its comprehensive exhibitions and the Burg Scharfenstein with its toy museum.
All of the following attractions can be reached within a day trip: castle Burg Stein in Hartenstein, the castles in Wolkenstein and Lichtenwalde, the museum in the castle of Schwarzenberg, the open-air museum of Seiffen, the castle Burg Kriebstein at the barrage of Kriebstein or the museum and the collection of art at Hinterglauchau.
Near the municipality of Burkhardtsdorf you also find the museum of local history in Geyer. Maybe you combine your visit with an excursion to the Binge, an abandoned mine in Geyer, to the Pöhlberg with observation tower and the basalt columns close to it. More nearby attractions are the so-called "Butterfässer" at the east of Annaberg-Buchholz or to the Erzgebirgsmuseum and visitor's mine Annaberg-Buchholz.
But also the Adam-Ries-museum and the manufacturing of the dreams in Annaberg-Buchholz, the visitor's mine and the museum of mineralogy in Ehrenfriedersdorf, the observation tower and the basalt columns, called "Orgelpfeifen" near Scheibenberg are interesting destinations.
A visit in the spring to the crocus meadows in Drebach, the “Miniwelt” in Lichtenstein and the mining museum in Oelsnitz/Erzgebirge are also worthwhile destinations.
