Freiberg is the silver town of Saxony. The grand patrician town houses around Obermarkt square bear witness to Freiberg's prosperous silver mining past. St. Mary's Cathedral with its 'golden portal' is a must-see. It contains priceless art treasures such as the tulip pulpit and a stunning Silbermann organ. You can discover more about mining at attractions such as the Reiche Zeche, the world's oldest educational visitor mine. Or head to Freudenstein Palace to see the world's largest mineralogical collection, Terra Mineralia.
