Bergbaulandschaft Ehrenfriedersdorf
Landscape conservation area · Greifensteinregion
Ehrenfriedersdorf mining landscape: Tin
The “Ehrenfriedersdorfer Kunstgezeug” water-pumping system was developed here in the 16th century, and used for around 200 years as the world’s foremost drainage technology. The mining landscape is an excellent example of tin-ore mining, which began in the 13th century at the Sauberg mountain.
Bergbaulandschaft Buchholz
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Buchholz mining landscape: Tin|Uranium
The mining landscape, located southwest of Buchholz, stands witness to the tin mining that occurred here from the 15th to the late-18th century in the middle of a silver-mining landscape. In 1495, mining activity lead to the founding of the mining town “St. Katharinenberg im Buchholz”, which grew in competition with the neighbouring mining town of Annaberg.
Bergbaulandschaft Pöhlberg
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Pöhlberg mining landscape: Silver
The mine at Pöhlberg became one of the most important silver and copper mines in the region. The silver-containing copper ore mined here was processed in the Saigerhütten [liquation-smelting] complex, Grünthal, owned by the entrepreneurial Uthmann family from 1550.
Montanlandschaft Schneeberg
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Schneeberg mining landscape: Cobalt
These excellently preserved mining artefacts point to the leading role of the Erzgebirge region in the mining and processing of cobalt ores from the 17th to the 18th century. Although Schneeberg was founded as a silver-mining town, it owes its current baroque appearance to cobalt mining.
Pulverturm Rother Berg
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Rother Berg mining landscape: Iron
The great demand for tools, machines and products made of iron was closely linked to silver mining in the region. The Erlahammer is a hammer mill, still preserved today, in use from the 17th to the 19th century.
Montanlandschaft Annaberg-Frohnau - Markus Röhling Stolln
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Annaberg-Frohnau mining landscape: Silver
In 1496, Annaberg was the first planned mining town established in the region, due to the rich silver deposits found in the Frohnau mining landscape. The collection of technological systems located both above and below ground document the transition from silver mining to cobalt extraction, then to the mining of bismuth, cobalt and nickel ore in the 18th century, all the way through to uranium mining in the Central Erzgebirge region during the final mining period.
Bergbaulandschaft Lauta
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
mining landscape of Lauta: 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.
Bergbaulandschaft Eibenstock Schwarze Pinge
Landscape conservation area · Erzgebirge
Eibenstock mining landscape: Tin
The high concentration of collapsed shafts, surface workings, mines located both under and above ground, processing sites and former ditches, as well as the archaeological remains of ore-crushing and charcoal-burning sites, as well as ore-transport routes, interspersed with small agricultural spaces throughout (14th to 19th century), is quite remarkable.
