The Ski Resort

© TouriSpo
The ski resort at Fichtelberg in the Erzgebirge mountains is the biggest ski resort in Eastern Germany with 16 kilometers (10 miles) of accessible terrain. Winter athletes can choose between ten skiable trails on either big Fichtelberg (1.215 m = 3.986 ft) or small Fichtelberg (1.206 m = 3.956 ft).

The adventure starts in Oberwiesenthal where you can catch a ride with Germany´s oldest suspension railway to the top of Fichtelberg or you grab the chairlift to reach the top of the mountain. You can find most beginner trails at small Fichtelberg in the valley. The t-bars bring the ski newbies right back up the mountain. Young ski beginners love the kids park ´Fichtelchens Winterland´ close to the valley station of the suspension railway. It welcomes with a ski carousel, six magic carpets and a terrain park that includes easy obstacles.

For those looking for easy runs it´s best to ski down the blue forest runs (No. 9 and 10) at the top of Fichtelberg. Those runs take you right to the ski tow Himmelsleiterlift. Thanks to the parking lot at the base station it´s a  perfect entrance to the ski resort and you have access to the small Fichtberg as well. From here you can head down the blue No. 2 that takes you through the forest and turns into a wide slope after. Perfect for carving! Then ride ski tow ´Kleinen Fichtelberg Kurvenlift´ to get up the small Fichtelberg and access even more red runs.

While the area does designate mostly beginner and intermediate runs, advanced skiers and riders are not without their runs. For example the black race slope at Schönjungferngrund is a good reason for experts to give this ski resort a shot. Follow for 1,2 km (0,74 miles) along the chairlift and suspension railway and overcome a height difference of 300 m (984 ft) for your ultimate personal challenge.

An additional attraction that speaks for Fichtelberg is night skiing. The main slope of Fichtelberg lights up until 9 pm every Friday and Saturday. A terrain park is located close to the suspension railway and welcomes visitors with a kicker line, wood line and a barrel rail combo.

In case you decide to stay longer than a day at Fichtelberg it makes sense to explore the runs that ski resort Klinovec in Czech Republic has to offer. It comes for free if you purchase a ski pass for longer than 1,5 days. The complimentary ski bus brings you over the border where 12 km (7,4 miles) of additional trails are awaiting you.

Activities

The Fichtelberg is not only home to numerous ski trails but also to a natural tobogganing run. To get here you need to grab the suspension railway. The 1,8 km (1,1 miles) long run that takes you through the forest and descends into the valley. Hammerunterwiesenthal offers a toboggan run as well, it´s only 300 m long (984 ft), ideal for tobogganing beginners. It doesn´t stop here: Oberwiesenthal has a natural ice-rink and five well-tracked winter hiking trails. Boží Dar is just three kilometers away and the great snowtubing run is worth the trip. Oberwiesenthal has an extensive wellness offer, so it´s the right address for those preferring relaxation over action after a day of skiing.

Après-Ski and Nightlife
