If you ever take a trip to Chemnitz, you will get to see its impressive art treasures, a variety of culture, magnificent Art Nouveau architecture, nostalgic industrial culture and idyllic scenery.
It is located in the state of Saxony (Sachsen), and named after the Chemnitz river.
From the time after World War II till reunification, the city was formally named as Karl-Marx-Stadt. It has changed significantly ever since. Most of its industry has gone, people too, and the core of the city has been rebuilt since it was destroyed.
Though, a lot of shopping centers had been built to maintain a quality life for both its citizens and visitors. And you still find good looking, historical buildings such as Old City Hall and a very small, cute castle.
The Red Tower is also worth a visit since it gives you an outstanding view over the city. Or what about the opera house, which has gained the status as the “Saxon Bayreuth” with its triumphant Wagner performances.
If you are interested in knowing the past of this city, then the 200 years of its record can be traced in the Industrial Museum.
