Chemnitz Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Once the seat of the late period Visigoth kings, Chemnitz still bears many of the marks of their existance. As one of Saxony's most important towns, it comes as no surprise that there is so much of archaeological importance in the area.
During the Second World War, the rolling hills around Chemnitz were explored for the lost Aryan treasures, and the region was the setting for many propaganda films. The museum has a good collection of artefacts, but the much publicised Chemnitz Gold - the subject of numerous 19th century treasure hunts - has never been located.
