Scharfenstein Castle

At a glance

Burg Scharfenstein is a castle full of adventures for the whole family.

For centuries the Ore Mountains lived from that which gave it its name – especially the silver mines, which made this picturesque mountain range a prosperous region. But when the face-workers in the sixteenth century started to bring ever less white ore out of the tunnels, the people of the Ore Mountains had to look for new sources of income. 

Therefore, what previously had been a way of passing the long winter nights became the way of earning their daily bread: the production of wooden figures and Christmas decorations. The treasures of this rich folk art tradition can be viewed at Scharfenstein Castle.
