The Zschonergrund is one of the most romantic linkselbischen side valleys and is formed by the same Zschonerbach. This stream, formerly also known as Schoner Bach or Zschone, rises above Zöllmen and then traverses the corridors of Ockerwitz, Kemnitz and Briesnitz, where it flows into the Elbe. The name is probably derived from the Slavic "cujni" = cheerful. The names of the places Steinbach and Kemnitz (Slavic: Steinbach) also point to this river.
Already in the Middle Ages the valley was used economically. Thus, the meadows served the farmers of the neighboring villages for hay production. On the sunny slopes was formerly cultivated wine, and later fruit trees. In addition, the area around the Zschonergrund hunting grounds of the spa prince. As early as 1324, a mill disappeared in the ground for the first time. Her successor was later the Zschonermühle, the world mill and the Schulzenmühle.more: dresdner-stadtteile.de/West/Kemnitz/Zschonergrund/zschonergrund.html
