Church of St. Annen

In 1499 the foundation stone for the famous Church of St. Annen was laid. It is to this day Saxony's biggest, late gothic hall church and famous for its Bergaltar (mountain altar). It rises high above the city and thus characterizes its silhouette. No less significant is the church of St. Marien with its mining crib, Saxony's only mountain church.
