Heimat- und Bergbaumuseum Erbendorf

Experiencing history


The mining history in Erbendorf can be traced back verifiably to the early 13th century. Until the mining industry was closed down in 1927, miners extracted lead, silver, zinc, copper and even gold from the ground. However, the proud mining tradition came to an abrupt end. In reference to this history, the collection of minerals with its treasures from the Steinwald region is definitely worth seeing. Here it is the old shop around the corner, the old school and the handicraft businesses from Erbendorf that bring to life the town’s history. Just as an example: who would have known that there once was a company in Erbendorf that produced Christmas tree baubles?
