The Preßnitz Valley is one of the most beautiful valleys of the Ore Mountains.
With its settlement due to the rising mining industry, a unique cultural landscape developed. In the district community Niederschmiedeberg, the Preßnitz Valley Museum exhibits the economic and cultural history of the region. Children, too, can discover a lot here! Mining, the iron industry, handcrafts, the paper industry, as well as the old Preßnitz Valley rail form the centre of this exhibition. Open on Sundays from 1.30 to 4.30 pm, except December 24th and 31st.
