Germany - Freiberg - Bergbau-Denkmäler
Bergbau-Denkmäler in Freiberg.
Sent by Stefanie, a postcrosser from Germany.
This is from UNESCO : For more than 800 years and still recognizable today in numerous technical monuments as well as in the physical landscape it has helped transform, mining has not only created a cultural landscape but also influenced the development of mining sciences (e. g. establishment of the Mining Academy in Freiberg). The unity of mining and steel, art and culture and the science of mining - as well as their influence on other countries - marks the historical importance of the Ore Mountains.
