The Kupferhammer Museum Saigerhütte alone is worth a visit for its magnificent old-world architecture. The hut used to be the center of copper processing in Saxony. Four, so-called hammer works, were once part of the Saigerwerk. Hundreds of buildings in Europe were covered with the Grünthaler roof copper, which was processed here. These include the Dresden Frauenkirche and the St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, which still partially bears the green roofs. Pretty impressive, we find.
In the Sagierhütte you can become the blacksmith of your own luck. Create and forge with the help of the master your very own lucky symbol! Information, opening hours and prices can be found here: olbernhau.org
