Unlimited World Heritage

The Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří Mining Region World Heritage Site does not end at the border between Saxony and Bohemia in the Czech Republic - mining has left a clear footprint on the Czech side too. Only when taken together do all 22 component parts demonstrate the extraordinary universal value of our World Heritage Site.

A journey of discovery to the other side of the border is also well worthwhile - the beautiful landscapes left behind by mining, such as the Vlčí Jámy (Wolf Hollow), a gorge formed by the collapse of an old mine, in Boží Dar, and Jáchymov, once the biggest city in Bohemia. The Royal Mint in Jáchymov also played a role in the history of the dollar.

The Mědník (Kupferberg) is situated close to the mining town of Měděnec. Take a walk around the hill and discover small opencast works, large adits and galleries, numerous sink holes, heaps and openings. Look out for the hill's historical landmark, a Baroque chapel dating back to 1674, which offers a remarkable view.

The mining town of Krupka and the 14th century castle by the same name boast a medieval layout and some stunning secular and religious buildings. Visit the Starý Martin Stolln visitor's mine to see Central Europe's longest (two-kilometre) closed tin ore vein. As the oldest tin ore field in the Erzgebirge, Krupka has had a major impact on knowledge of tin mining in Europe.
