Tourism

The German Watch Museum Glashütte is an exciting destination for a trip in the Eastern Ore Mountains. Located in the middle of the “Ore Mountains mining region” world cultural heritage site, the town of Glashütte, with its watchmaking industry, is an interesting example of how the decline of the mining industry turned into the success story of a town. The German Watch Museum Glashütte is presenting its 175-year history of watchmaking in a multimedia exhibition.

For group trips of up to 100 people, the German Watch Museum Glashütte is an exciting item on the programme.
