Snow reliability is very important in Oberwiesenthal. 120 snow cannons are available if there is not enough natural snow. All slopes in Oberwiesenthal and the slopes on Keilberg in the Czech Republic, about 5 km away, can be used with the ski pass for the Fichtelberg / Klínovec ski region. Depending on the location, tow and chair lifts as well as a gondola lift ensure that the skiers can easily reach the respective mountain stations.
The slopes are varied and mostly classified as medium-difficult. This makes the Fichtelberg / Klínovec ski region the perfect terrain for beginners, those returning to alpine skiing and families with children.

On the Czech side, the six runs on the northeast side of the Keilberg are particularly popular because they lead idyllically through the snow-covered winter forest.
Oberwiesenthal has the only FIS World Cup runs in East Germany. The 1.2 km long FIS route below Germany’s oldest cable car is just as much a challenge for experienced skiers as the “Am Wäldchen” piste.

In the village itself, numerous restaurants and pubs are waiting to spoil winter sports enthusiasts at the end of an eventful day with regional dishes, but also with international cuisine.
The typical local potato specialties are particularly recommended. On the Keilberg, an umbrella bar operated by a herbal schnapps manufacturer is a popular meeting place for party-loving guests.

The ski area located here extends all the way down into the village, so that when the snow conditions are good, you can almost ski to the door of the accommodation.
The place is widely considered to be the home of the Christ Child because of its proximity to heaven. That is why Boží Dar is nicknamed the “Christ Child City”. Children and adults can drop wish lists for the Christ Child in a mailbox in the town center. A special attraction is the “Christkindlehrpfad” for children who have to solve various tasks on a 13 km long hiking trail. At the end there is a small gift.
To the north of the Keilberg lies Loucna pod Klinovcem, in German: Böhmisch-Wiesenthal, directly behind the German border. The small town has barely more than 200 inhabitants, making it the second smallest continuously inhabited place in the Czech Republic. The Polava river forms the border to Germany and creates an idyllic atmosphere in the village.
