City of Modernity

Chemnitz – Karl-Marx-Stadt – Chemnitz

City walking tour

Karl Marx MonumentMeeting point: Market square (Tourist Information Office or by arrangement)

Duration: 1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hours

The inner city of Chemnitz has a lot to offer. From the Red Tower dated back to the time of the city founding up to the first (and the only one in Germany until now) glass department store Kaufhof evidences from various epochs of the towns history are to explore. Especially buildings erected in the Modern Style survived the aerial bombardments of the Second World War, not least because of their progressive building structure. Today they are beautifully restored and basis of the Chemnitz slogan “City of Modernity”, together with a large number of art treasures of the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz and the collection of the museum Gunzenhauser.

I would like to give an understanding of the history of these buildings, complemented by one or another anecdote, which we Chemnitz people or I personally experienced.

In the evening Chemnitz is at its most beautiful side. The most interesting buildings and even our “Nischel” are put in scene with lights and give the city an unique atmosphere.
