On the Way to Becoming a World Cultural Heritage Site
Thanks to the rich silver deposits in the city of mountains and Adam Ries, it was one of the richest cities in Saxony in the 16th century. St. Anne's Church is one of the most significant testaments to this time. The visitor mines "Im Gößner", Markus Röhling, and Dorotheastolln provide insight into the tradition spanning years. With the decline of ore mining, carving and bobbin lacemaking made their mark in the Ore Mountains. These handcrafts are presented in the Erzgebirgsmuseum and the Manufaktur der Träume.
