The association supports the inclusion of the cultural landscape of the Erzgebirge mining region in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.
ERZGEBIRGE/KRUŠNOHOŘÍ MINING REGION
On both sides of the German–Czech border, the Erzgebirge is a unique cultural landscape inextricably bound with the mining industry. After the initial discovery of silver in 1168, mining constituted Saxony’s most important, innovative economic and technological sector for many centuries.
This history lives on and can be seen in a series of surface and underground mining monuments, in the very mining landscapes themselves, in the mining towns and settlements, as well as in the cultural traditions of the Erzgebirge people. These different aspects combine to create a unique cultural landscape of international significance.
