The Georgenfelder Hochmoor is a raised bog in the German Ore Mountains of central Europe, not far from Zinnwald-Georgenfeld. It is part of a larger bog or moor complex, that lies to the south, mainly on the far side of the Germany's national border in the Czech Republic and which, since time immemorial, has been known simply as "The Lake" . The Georgenfelder Hochmoor is one of the oldest nature reserves in Saxony.
Zinnwald-Georgenfeld, which lies right on the German-Czech border, is about 45 kilometres south of Dresden and four kilometres south of Altenberg. This dispersed settlement, on the plateau at the crest of the eastern Ore Mountains, lies at an elevation of 780 to 880 metres above sea level and is the highest village in the eastern Ore Mountains. The Georgenfelder Hochmoor is part of this municipality.
