Zwickau is a famous stop on the Silver Road, Saxony’s longest holiday road. The city used to be known for its silver mining industry and today attracts lovers of classic cars and classical music alike. The August Horch Museum features beautiful classic cars while the Robert Schumann House is dedicated to the composer and his wife Clara Schumann. Two monuments remind of the history of this city of music and cars: Apart from a Schumann statue there is also a Trabant made of concrete that reminds of this legendary car that was built in Zwickau until 1991.
Far away from any kind of hectic or stress there are many great spots inviting you to stop between Altenburg, Crimmitschau, Zwickau, Reichenbach, Schneeberg and Hohenstein-Ernstthal such as picturesque Blankenhain Palace, the miniature world in Lichtenstein, the skat cards museum at Altenburg Palace or “Grillstation Talsperre Eibenstock“, a popular hang-out for motorbikers.
