Take a cheap summer holiday in Europe and explore the Erzgebirge mountain range, which forms the border between Saxony in Germany and Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The mountain range takes its name from the word "Erz", which means "ore", because the mountain soil is rich in various metallic minerals.
Ever since the Middle Ages, these minerals have made the area one of Europe's most important mining areas. The Erzgebirge is also known for its proud tradition of wood carving and wood carving, especially for Christmas-related figurines. Räuchermänn, nutcrackers and pyramids are well-known products which are sold for large sums all over the world. There are several museums in the town of Seiffen, just north of the Czech border. Book a cheap hotel stay with Risskov and go on a self-drive holiday.
