Originally built in 1485 as a residence for the cathedral clergy, the building is without a doubt one of the most beautiful late-gothic period buildings in the entire mining city and always worth a visit. The Freiberg City and Mining Museum, founded in 1861 by the Freiberg Historical Society, is one of the oldest publicly-erected museums in Saxony.

A wide range of presentations lead the visitor into the world of local mining and illustrate the important highlights of Freiberg´s history. The fun continues with the exciting history of Freiberg in the middle ages. There is a presentation dedicated to the second urban mining boom of the early modern period. There is also a designated area makes for the era of industrialisation and cultural change.
