SilverBoom. The research and teaching mine of the university is a venue of the 4th Saxon State Exhibition 2020.
From 11 July to 31 December 2020 the "Rich Colliery" Freiberg is one of six venues of the 4th Saxon State Exhibition on Industrial Culture.
For centuries the Freiberg mining district was the most important Saxon silver supplier and the "Reiche Zeche" was one of the (most advanced) technically innovative mines in Europe. Where once the miners dug for silver and gathered a treasure trove of knowledge, scientists from the internationally renowned Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg are now researching and teaching.
