Welcome to Kurort Seiffen
The world-famous toy village of Seiffen was first mentioned in the year 1324. Back the village was referred to as “Cynsifen”. Seiffen is located 60 kilometers southeast of Chemnitz close to the Czech border. It is picturesquely situated in a valley in the heart of the Ore Mountains. With an altitude of 650 to 700 meters above sea level, the toy village is almost on the mountain ridge. Seiffen is a state-approved resort.
Love for the homeland, unique craftsmanship and the passion for working with wood are what defines the village of Seiffen today. You can get a first impression in our image film.
The many events taking place in Seiffen are very popular with our guests. These include the Miner’s Parades during Christmas, the “Days of Historical Crafts” in the open-air museum or the various concerts in the famous baroque church.

We are looking forward to your visit!
