The Zwickau District is found in the northern foothills of the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) in the German state of Saxony. The Zwickauer Mulde and the Pleiße rivers cut through the hilly land, filling the surrounding valleys with lakes.

The city of Zwickau itself has a huge amount to offer you and sits on the banks of the Mulde. The impressive Audi and Volkswagen museums do take the center stage — even for non-car-buffs!
Around town you will also find an impressive cathedral and some of the countries oldest surviving residential buildings from the 13th century. However, still leave time to visit the surrounding towns and villages as there is plenty to see!
Some delights of the Zwickau District include Crimmitschau with its fantastic castle and Hohenstein-Ernstthal which still has its silver mines.
Another is Waldenburg, which houses some great museums and Grünfelder Park — a vast and ornate garden designed in an English-style.
