Zschopau Things to Do

Wildeck is today an early crafts museum with a collection of historical foundry moulds, coin dies and ancient book-presses. But the exhibition "Motorcycle Dreams" is also of great importance: after all, it was after the Dane Jörgen Skafte Rasmussen settled in Zschopau in 1907 that the town became a center of German motorcycle manufacture. The long-time world market leader DKW later became MZ, a company that still thrills bikers today.
Two rooms - The Yellow Chamber ("Gelbe Kammer") and the Blue-White Parlour ("Blau-Weiße Stube")- were restored in the original way of the 16th Century and can be visited and used for public events. Currently more premises are being rebuilt in their old beauty. The redesigned Baroque Garden, which is directly at the castle, invites visitors to stay.
As for me, it is not the place which is "a must" for tourists, but if you have some free time and like motorcycle - it will be nice and interesting trip for you. Also there is a possibility to climb up the tower: city looks really nice from there.Related to:
