The Capital of Culture 2025 and the World Heritage Erzgebirge, are waiting to be discovered by you!
The mining towns, the landscape, the cultural heritage, the people's attitude to life: they all vividly and multi-facetedly tell the authentic story of this unique region. A region whose underground treasures - silver, tin, cobalt, iron and uranium - once made Saxony's rulers rich. And its excellently preserved heritage is still a unique treasure worldwide today. UNESCO has also recognised this and awarded the Ore Mountains/Krušnohoří Mining Region - its official title - the title of "World Heritage Site" in 2019. A World Heritage Site just waiting to be discovered by you!
