Leisure and relaxation in the Mulde valley

Experience the Saxon Burgenland with its mills and monasteries

A journey to the Erlebnishotel "Zur Schiffsmühle" is an experience for young and old. Take relaxing bike tours along the Mulde (Mulderadweg), hike the "Weg der Steine" or the Muldental hiking trail or take a boat trip across the river, explore the surroundings of Grimma or simply leave your children on our mini golf course and the large adventure playground in the wild.

In our bowling grotto you can push a quiet ball on modern lanes with UV-lighting or go on excursions, for example to the Jutta Park with Bismarck Tower, to the Denkmalschmiede Kaditzsch or to the monastery ruins in Nimbschen. Höfgen - the village of the senses - and its surroundings offer you ideal conditions for a relaxing (short) vacation; also as a haven of peace after an extensive shopping or cultural tour through Leipzig.

"Schiffmühle" Museum

This special form of the mill died out entirely at the end of the 19th century. This mill was rebuilt in the early 1990s and now serves as a supply for the water systems in Jutta Park and explains the history of these mills.


Mini golf

Skill, concentration and a good eye are the most important properties that a good mini golf player must have in order to make the small ball disappear in the target hole with as few strokes as possible. The mini golf course also includes a small snack bar that offers ice cream, drinks and small dishes. (Photo: private)
