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.
