Welcome to the green Raummühle!

300 herb species, an "international insect hotel", a water wheel and natural vegetation including snakeweed, willowherb and hawkweed are just some of the highlights on the Hostel's own nature trail, which winds its way around the Youth Hostel in its idyllic setting near the Preßnitz Valley in the central Ore Mountains. A designated Environmental | Youth Hostel, the mill is a listed building built in 1812, and as such is a real gem itself - whatever the time of year, it always has its own unique charm.

Tips for your stay

Around the Youth Hostel itself there's plenty to do and enjoy. In addition to the sports ground for football and volleyball, the very large, natural grounds also have a playground for children, nature trail and a large pond with water wheel. Guests can also play table tennis or make use of the campfire and barbecue area. There are plenty of opportunities for winter sports on cross-country trails and pistes not far from the Youth Hostel. There is a ski lift about a kilometre from the Hostel - skates and skis can be borrowed. In summer, on the other hand, a walk to the heated swimming people two kilometres away is well worth it.

Sightseeing and excursions

Why not explore the surrounding region? You could plan trips to Oberwiesenthal - Germany's highest town -, to Annaberg-Buchholz with technology museums like Frohnauer Hammer and the visitors' mine, to the remarkable St. Anne's Church, to Bärenstein mountain, Pöhlberg mountain or Hirtstein mountain ("Basalt Rose"), or explore the Schwarzwassertal or travel to the neighbouring Czech Republic. Travelling on the little railway from Jöhstadt to Steinbach , followed by a visit to the 14th-century mining tunnels is always great fun for young and old alike.

Preßnitztalbahn museum railway
Preßnitztalbahn - The loveliest narrow-gauge railway in Saxony!
In 1892, the trains of the "old" Preßnitztalbahn puffed their way for the first time from Wolkenstein up to the mountain town of Jöhstadt. With a track length of 23 kilometres and a 750-mm track gauge that is typical of Saxony's narrow-gauge railways, it winds its way through the narrow valleys of the Preßnitz and the Schwarwasser.
