City of Chemnitz: Tourism

Chemnitz is the third largest city in Eastern Germany. There are lots of things to experience and see here. In addition, Chemnitz is one of the cities with the largest proportion of parks and green spaces. Because the past and the future encounter each other in productive tension, Chemnitz sees itself as a city of modernity.

Sights such as the Marx Monument, the art collections with the Gunzenhauser Museum or the Petrified Forest in the Tietz Building are among the most popular attractions for tourists. And those who want to see attractive landscapes can choose short trips into the nearby Ore Mountains, to castles and romantic river valleys.
