Our home villages Pretzschendorf, Colmnitz, Klingenberg, Friedersdorf und Röthenbach are situated in the German federal state of Saxony in the south-east of Germany.
Berlin, capital of Germany, is located about 230 km north of Pretzschendorf. Praha, capital of the Czech Republic, is situated 140 km south. The capital of Saxony, Dresden – known worldwide for its baroque buildings as the rebuilt Frauenkirche – is 35 km away. The railway station Klingenberg-Colmnitz is part of the railway line between Dresden and Zwickau.
In total, barely 4,000 inhabitants are living in our five villages in the lower Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge, famous for wooden christmas decoration like nutcrackers and incense smokers) at a height of 350 m to 550 m above sea level. The adjacent Klingenberg Dam is a local recreation area and the source of potable water for the region.
