CHEMNITZ - THE CITY OF MODERNITY

Chemnitz, more than 800 years old, is situated in the heart of Saxony. The city is the third-largest in the new Federal States; about 245,000 people live here. More than 10,000 young people study at the Chemnitz University of Technology.

Fascinating architecture reflects the changing times and spirit of those things which have shaped the city: industrial monuments, redeveloped Gründerzeit residential quarters such as Kassberg, the Schocken department store, Villa Esche or the city centre, which has been completely modified since Re-unification, constructed by Helmut Jahn, Hans Kollhoff, and Christoph Ingenhoven, bridge the gap from yesterday to today and tomorrow. The city alone has invested more than 50 million Euros in the new city centre, investors more than 500 million Euros. Just as famous is the 7.10-metres-high Karl-Marx bust made of bronze by Lew Kerbel in 1971, locally known as "Nischel" (head).

Probably no other city in Germany fits the description "City of Modernity" quite so well as Chemnitz does. Developed at the time of Classical Modernism, which still gives impetus to the development of business and science, the influences of the cultural and architectural Modernism are visible and perceptible.
