CHEMNITZ - THE CITY OF MODERNITY
Welcome to Chemnitz!
Welcome to our city, welcome to the "City of Modernism". We invite you to join us for a virtual voyage of discovery through a city whose face has changed in recent years. Where grey concrete dominated the landscape just over two decades ago, renowned architects such as Hans Kollhoff, Helmut Jahn and Christoph Ingenhoven have designed and built a new city centre. Today, Chemnitz has an urban core that attracts many people. more
