The oldest miniature park in the world is perhaps among the most beautiful and unique attractions in Saxonia. „Klein-Erzgebirge“ has developed from the local tradition of the „Heimatberge“, wooden hadcrafted scenes showing the local miners´ lives, some of them even including figurines and details that move. For centuries, daily life and the hard work down the mine have been depicted in those moving miniature „worlds“. In Oederan, a veritable mountain range of these local scenes has been growing over the last 80 years under the trees of the municipal park – unparalleled folk art in open air. Get some inspiration for your trip here and keep coming back now and again for this little world is constantly getting larger!
The place for folk art enthusiasts – a multitude of original handcrafted wooden items from the Erzgebirge region, wonderful ideas and gifts. Find your own little treasure on over 400 square metres of beautiful handcrafted items in the House at Klein-Erzgebirge ranging from grim nutcrackers and hundreds of different cute smokers to the most beautiful angels.
The entrance area welcomes you with a special exhibition of impressive miniatures of Chinese culture that create a unique atmosphere. 2012 is the year of „Cultural Year of China in Germany“ and we are very glad to be included in the official calendar of events of the Chinese Ministry of Culture. The exhibition carries you off to the Temple of Confucius, to the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum and to the Midair Rock temples.
