Erzgebirge Montane Region

The Erzgebirge along the way to become a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site

Montanregion Erzgebirge
The “Montanregion Erzgebirge e.V.” supports the goal of developing the Erzgebirge as an industrial landscape even while supporting selected elements for UNESCO World Cultural Heritage protection in the “Erzgebirge montane region”. The Erzgebirge can point to many valuable landmarks related to technology and history. In addition, there are cultural monuments closely related to mining (vernacular and sacral buildings, statues, paintings and art collections) and protected natural areas with natural monuments. The goal is to preserve this legacy for humanity, and to make it known internationally.
