Commune of Schönheide
A community with four train stations …
The commune of Schönheide is located in the western extremity of the Ore Mountains, directly at the border with the Upper Vogtland, and can justifiably be considered one of Saxony’s most beautiful places. Schönheide lies at an elevation of up to 767 m (2516 ft), extending five kilometres (3.1 mi.) in a tributary valley of the Zwickauer Mulde river. The municipal area incorporates the subdistricts of Neuheide, Schönheiderhammer and Wilzschhaus. The Stützengrün-Schönheide museum railway and Obere Muldentalbahn railway from Schönheide to Muldenberg, which is operated by the FHWE association, are two tourist railway lines running through Schönheide.
