"We are staying in Sankt Andreasberg for the next 4 nights and are looking for beautiful hikes to do in the area. We are fit, but would like to keep the duration under 4 hours. Round walks are preferable, but if the scenery is pretty enough, a there-and-back walk will do us just fine! " (posted 07/11/2016)

More about the History of Sankt Andreasberg

Sankt Andreasberg was founded in the 1480s. It was first mentioned in a letter from the Count Heinrich zu Stolberg to Dietrich von Witzlebenon on 3 November 1487. The establishment of the village took place around the market. The first silver mines are assumed to be the St. Andrews Cross Mine (German: Grube St. Andreaskreuz) at the foot of the Beerberg and the St. Andrews Mine (Grube St. Andreas) by the market. In 1521, St. Andreasberg received the right to mine from Counts Heinrich and Ernst von Hohenstein. It was proclaimed in Mansfelder Land and in the mining areas of Saxony and miners were invited to dig for silver and other metals.
