Immerse yourself in an extraordinary green oasis - the Schellerhau Botanical Garden.
The Schelllerhau Botanical Garden was founded in 1906 by Gustav Adolf Poscharsky, inspector of the Royal Botanical Garden in Dresden, originally as a private garden. The average annual temperature here is 5 C. Not only are here local species of plants from the Ore Mountains region, but also plants from other European mountains, Asia and North America can be successfully grown in this climate.   Various paths and trails lead through the botanical garden, there are also two ponds.

There is also a nature trail "Nature and Music", where you can listen to various picturesque sounds that you create yourself at nine stops.
