Map of the natural areas in the Ore Mountains

The Osterzgebirge is as the eastern part of the Saxon Erzgebirge a natural space in Saxony and part of the superunit Saxon mountains and highlands . The western border is the Flöha valley , which is already part of the Middle Ore Mountains . The northern boundary is fuzzy and runs roughly from the town of Flöha north of Oederan and Freiberg , including the Tharandt forest to the town of Tharandt . The limit in the northeast is the Saxon Switzerland , part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains , and continues to the Bad Gottleuba area . Its southern continuation extends to the foot of the Erzgebirge in the Czech Republic .

The highest point on the Czech side is on the Loučná ( Wieselstein , 956  m nm ). On the German / Saxon side, the 905 m high Kahleberg is the highest point.

Higher layers of the Osterzgebirge both in the district of Central Saxony and proportionally, insofar as it is included in the Erzgebirge district , belong to the Erzgebirge / Vogtland Nature Park .
