- The Klosterkirche (Large medieval monastery church)
- O-Treasure Park
- The Wilde Robert steam train running over a 70KM route
- Waagenmuseum (Weighing technology museum, going from 1845 to the GDR era to the present day)
Like many preserved towns, the centre of OSschatz is home to the Altmarkt. The Altmarkt with its old market fountain is host to the towns open air market, founded 900 years ago. Modified over the years. The entire town centre was reconstructed in 2003 back to the way it was with a new fountain, sculpture, plants and more. The new fountain features the bird, the dragon, the fish and the elephant, each stands for the four elements of water, air, fire and earth. The town centre is a pedestrian zone now, during the long summers the town centre is alive with families enjoying this wonderful town.
For your first visit, you should take a tour of the town. Local expert Johanna Sophia Lochmann takes visitors on a 1.5 Hour tour. The tour begins at the enchanting Altmarkt, after which you gradually get to see more of the town. The historical centre has been restored including the "Burgher houses" which you can explore freely. At the end of the tour, "Gasthaus Zum Schwan" is the perfect place to relax in one of the oldest Saxon inns of Germany. The Oschatz information tour is a great way to get to know this extraordinary town.
For kids, there is a large boating pond, huge park and brand new crazy golf course. For shoppers, you won’t need to leave town for anything, from clothes to groceries you are spoilt for choice right here.
