Chemnitz, the “City of Modernity” in Saxony

Chemnitz, the “City of Modernity” in Saxony

Well-known architects have designed a completely new and modern city centre in Chemnitz. This move paid off handsomely when in 2006 the city won the DIFA Award for inner-city design. The Chemnitz of the 21st century impresses inhabitants and visitors alike with its distinguished and architecturally ambitious shopping possibilities, including:

-Galerie Roter Turm [Red Tower Galleria] (Architects Hans Kollhoff & Walter Brune) - -Peek & Cloppenburg Department Store (Christoph Ingenhoven) - -Galeria Kaufhof (Helmut Jahn)


Christmas traditions from the Ore Mountains as far as the eye can see on the Christmas market in Chemnitz. The twelve metre high, five-storied Christmas pyramid, a five metre high Schwibbogen, a likewise oversized musical box and further traditional figures from the Ore Mountains like nutcrackers, miner and angel represent the typical handicraft of the region. Approximately 200 wooden booths around the guildhall offer Christmas delicacies, tree decorations and above all traditional folk art from the Ore Mountains. On the adjoining medieval market, historically clad craftsmen present old handicraft techniques.
