Treat yourself to your personal Grand Prix on this winding track in the western part of the Ore Mountains. The tour is as impressive as the motorbike Grand Prix on the famous Sachsenring racing circuit in Hohenstein-Ernstthal. You’ll be far away from any kind of mass tourism and pass by historic monuments reminding of the old local silver ore mining industry or August Horch’s automobile empire which was founded in Zwickau mor than 100 years ago.

Zwickau is a famous stop on the Silver Road, Saxony’s longest holiday road. The city used to be known for its silver mining industry and today attracts lovers of classic cars and classical music alike. The August Horch Museum features beautiful classic cars while the Robert Schumann House is dedicated to the composer and his wife Clara Schumann. Two monuments remind of the history of this city of music and cars: Apart from a Schumann statue there is also a Trabant made of concrete that reminds of this legendary car that was built in Zwickau until 1991.

Far away from any kind of hectic or stress there are many great spots inviting you to stop between Altenburg, Crimmitschau, Zwickau, Reichenbach, Schneeberg and Hohenstein-Ernstthal such as picturesque Blankenhain Palace, the miniature world in Lichtenstein, the skat cards museum at Altenburg Palace or “Grillstation Talsperre Eibenstock“, a popular hang-out for motorbikers.
