    Kiwis

    This place is a more recent (although a couple of years old) addition to Oberwiesenthal. What I had missed in the past was a place for the younger generation, more 'hip' and fashionable - I know that not everyone likes the rustic, traditional ambience. The Kiwis is that place. They call themselves "coffee lounge bar" - and that's spot on. You can have a snack, cocktails, long drinks, but also cakes and coffee/tea. There is a huge TV screen on one wall, with sports channels running. Large windows allow good view of the things that go on outside, on the street. So this is a perfect place for the afternoon - apres ski - but also for the evening.

    I was here in the the afternoon before I caught the bus back home. The place was not very busy then, definitely too early for apres-ski. I had a piece of chocolate cake (yummy) and a cup of Darjeeling tea (very good, too). The check was 6 Euro - overpriced IMO.

    Btw, the owners seem to have a relation to New Zealand. The name alone indicates it. I believe to recall that the guy in charge told me they had lived there for a while before coming back home.

    Hotel Vierenstraße in Neudorf

    Our cross-country skiing tour (groomed trails) ended in Neudorf, some km north of Oberwiesenthal, in early afternoon. Originally the plan was to take the narrow-gauge steam train back, but due to repair works on the railroads the trains didn't run and we had to take a replacement bus. We decided to kill the time until departure by having a late lunch meal in Hotel Vierenstraße's restaurant, right by the train stop.

    The dining rooms are nicely decorated with bright wood (some panelled walls, furniture, bar). Service was very good, friendly, quick. I had fried potatoes with mushrooms and a dark beer (Köstritzer) - yummy.

    Caution: The clock on the wall in the main dining room is very confusing: It runs counter-clockwise! The host told us that it has happened that guests missed their train or bus due to that special clock ... (see pic 5)

    Kaffee Enderlein

    This is another cafe/bakery/pastry shop that is located on the way to the ski area, but only a few steps from the Markt square. I liked this one very much, too, maybe for its somewhat quirky ambience. The interior reminded me a lot of the old communist era, not in a bad way, but more amusing. Obviously they kept the plastic decoration at the ceiling, the tables and stools looked like from the 1980s, too - but perfectly clean and they were also comfortable (pics 2 and 4). I don't know if this is pure incidence or if they intentionally keep up this retro ambience - but it's nice. There was more than enough Christmas decoration also, like wooden angel and miner figures, smoker men, candle arches etc. (pic 4). After having a look at their website I'm not sure if the places still looks the same, seems they renovated the rooms and changed the interior - a loss IMO.

    Service was quick, competent and friendly, prices were very reasonable. I had a piece of yummy cheesecake filled with apricot pieces, and white tea (see pic 3) - excellent.

    Kaffee König

    Since 1925 Kaffee König is a place where both locals and tourists meet to enjoy coffee and cake, relax and do some people watching. The location is perfect: Right half way from the Markt square to the ski area, only a minute from the skilifts. From the cafe you have an excellent view of the ski runs.

    Upon entering the house (entrance at Brauhausstraße) you're greeted by the Tiffany-style lamp (pic 5), you turn left and after entering the cafe you see the huge display of the many cakes, fancy cakes, cookies, and even hand-made pralines/chocolate. The room is rather large (pic 2), with an open fireplace (pic 4) that makes for a somewhat rustic, lovely ambience.

    I had a piece of fancy cake and a glass of Darjeeling tea - all delicious. Prices are slightly higher than in Cafe Vienna, but still reasonable.

    They also offer accommodation, btw, and also snacks/lunch.

    Cafe Vienna

    The name of this cafe is quite confusing: The letters at the facade say "Cafe Vienna", but the advertisings say it's bakery and cafe "Schmiedl." I finally found out that family Schmiedel took over the old cafe Vienna a while ago. Anyway, this place is centrally located, right on the Markt square (lower end) and has a wonderful old-world charm. Upon entering you come to the salesroom of the bakery/pastry shop. Pick your choice of (fancy) cake etc. right here but continue to the cafe through the door on the left side. It's a rather small room, panelled with dark wood, very gemütlich.

    Service is friendly and very good. I had a piece of cake and a Darjeeling tea (both very tasty). Prices are very reasonable, don't remember the exact amount, sorry.

    Restaurant Rotgiesserhaus

    Since we stayed here we also tested their restaurant one evening. I liked the ambience a lot. The restaurant is in the old part of the house, thus it is a bit rustic, cosy, has a big oven and wooden tables/stools/benches which makes for a really pleasant atmosphere. Service was very friendly and good.

    I had venison with dumplings and red cabbage - very tasty - and a glass of red wine. The check was about 40 Euro for two and I thought that was slightly overpriced, also compared to other restaurants in town.

    Gasthof Rotes Haus: Yummy local food

    by King_Golo Written May 31, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hungry from our hike, we decided to stop for food somewhere in the area. There are plenty of restaurants in Oberwiesenthal, but we drove to the next village (Hammerunterwiesenthal) and discovered a great place there: Gasthof Rotes Haus.
    Designed in local woodwork style (lots of motives from mining included), the restaurant is typical for the area. The food is very good - hearty meals called "Farmer's Breakfast" or the like - and everything seems to be prepared freshly. Furthermore, the owners are nice and friendly people. Altogether: 10 of 10 points!

    Favorite Dish: The Farmer's Breakfast (Bauernfrühstück) was very tasty. My wife enjoyed one of the many mushroom dishes on the menue.
