Nutcrackers – the pride and joy of traditional Erzgebirge crafts

Magical. Erzgebirge woodcarving in Annaberg-Buchholz.

Traditional crafts such as lace making and woodcarving are as much a part of Annaberg as the legacy of the influential mathematician Adam Ries. In the Erzgebirgsmuseum and numerous demonstration workshops you can see examples of these handicrafts that have become famous around the world. To experience this art form at its most enchanting, visit the Factory of Dreams interactive museum in the heart of the old quarter, where the sheer diversity of the woodcarvings will transport you to another world.
