The Mining Cultural Landscape Erzgebirge/Krušnohorˇí
The Ore Mountains – a region with a unique mining heritage
The Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge/Krušnohoˇrí) is a Central European mining region located at the German-Czech border. Emerged from the search for silver and other ores, the mining activities in the Ore Mountains formed the development of the economy, the culture
and the landscape of Saxony and Bohemia from the Middle Ages until today. To this day, the interrelation of industry, culture and landscape makes the Ore Mountains unique.
