Historical old town of Marienberg: Silver

The mining town of Marienberg is an extraordinary example of a planned mining town, initially founded on free, as yet undeveloped land set directly beside an area of rich and varied ore deposits. The town was laid out following the Renaissance model, first used here north of the Alps in the process of founding a town. Both the town of Marienberg and its mining landscape represent the final phase in urban and landscape development in the Erzgebirge in connection with silver mining in the 16th century.
