The municipality of Burkhardtsdorf, which today also encompasses the districts of Meinersdorf, Kemtau and Eibenberg, has been around since 1331. Various trades and industries such as linen weaving and hosiery, as well as foam-making and mechanical engineering that began after the Second World War, helped Burkhardtsdorf to grow. In 1875, the municipality was connected to the Chemnitz-Aue railway network, which is still served by the Erzgebirgsbahn Railway today. Burkhardtsdorf has long enjoyed a varied array of societies. In addition to the carnival club, the theatre club and various other local groups, the Bulldog-Freunde Ore Mountains association runs the Bulldog Museum at the Topfmarkt, where an original Hartmann steam engine, still in working order, is on display. The Buchdruckerei-Museum (Printing Museum), which is maintained by the History and Art Association, reminds us of the time before society went digital. At the Rößler-Hof, you will discover the delights of regional produce and can also try your hand at cheese-making.


Fascinating museums, regional products and a dip in the water: Burkhardtsdorf offers culture and fun for the whole family.
