Berlin, which is the national capital, is situated 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Schoenheide.
From major tourist drawcards to secret places that are waiting just for you, the area around Schoenheide is crisscrossed with cultural and natural attractions. Geyer, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southwest, and Bad Elster, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast of Schoenheide are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
Approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest of Schoenheide is Bad Elster, a regional center where you'll find Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity, The Royal Spa House and Naturtheater. Albert Park and Badeplatz are other attractions that should be included on every visitor's schedule.
If the weather makes you want to head indoors, spend some time in Saxony's art galleries and history museums. An excellent way to develop an understanding for a spot is by understanding its past. While here, take the time to drop into the area's historic castles.
Get some down time upon the water with a spot of canoeing or water skiing. Why not try some winter activities while you are in this area? Skiing is a good option. Another one is snowboarding.
When it is time to depart from Schoenheide, use the last of your euros on last minute keepsakes for the folks at home and say Tschüss (farewell).
