Horch Museum

Reviewed By pore - Goldau, Switzerland

The Horch Automuseum (car museum) is located in the old factory of Audi cars which were produced here before WWII. It shows all makes of Auto Union (Horch, Wanderer, DKW, Audi) and also some cars which were produced after the war at Zwickau (Trabant also called Trabi).
In summer 2017 this museum will even be more interesting as they are adding the Trabant collection of the old Trabant workers which is actually based on an other exhibition.
As Zwickau was the main car making city in Germany (there is still a VW factory) this is the best place to show such a collection of cars.
This museum is recommended to people of all ages who are interested in cars.

It took 5 years to create this almost Roman looking bridge, which is still being in use as a railway bridge. Worth the short detour from the Chemnitz-Bayreuth highway.

Robert - Schumann - Haus

Reviewed By WRC35 - London, United Kingdom

We stayed near Zwickau because we wanted to visit this museum. We were very taken with the historic centre of Zwickau itself which is much more attractive than the guide-books lead you to expect. The Museum offers a wealth of information relating to the lives and music of Robert and Clara Schumann, and is much more interesting than the very limited Schumann Museum in Leipzig. Unusually for a museum in Germany it was free, which was a pleasant surprise and it therefore seems a little churlish to complain that one of our free audio-guides failed to work properly - I am sure if we had returned it the helpful lady at the desk she would have replaced it for us.

There is no entrance fee to pay for this museum. It shows how priests (lower level) used to live in the middle ages. pore

This is a beautiful church partly from the end of the 12th Century. There are problems with the construction due of mining in earlier centuries. Fortunately all is under control in the mean time. pore

Sachsenring

Reviewed By tezpil - Portsmouth, United Kingdom

Despite the wet weather plenty of thrills at the moto GP. Little seats being quite narrow, give a variety of viewing points around the track depending upon what you have booked. The track is quiet closed off compared to Assen where there is much more banked open viewing space. Plenty of food and beer outlets for all tastes. We parked 2 motorcycles on the streets nearby. Signage was limited with large gaps between signs for the designated parking areas.

Kunstsammlungen Zwickau Max-Pechstein-Museum

Reviewed By Cho-san - 川崎

前には広い駐車場あり。ツウィッカウ生まれのマックス・ペックスタイン (1881 – 1955)に一部屋が割かれています。彼の作品が油彩画39点、壁画1点、モザイク31点、ステンドグラス2点が展示されていました。ここは撮影禁止。
事前の調べではクラナッハ、ギルランダイオ、ホイエン、キルヒナー、ノルデ等がある事になっていマシたが、展示されておらず、観られたのはマックス・ペックスタインの他にはレンバッハトリーバーマンがめぼしいものでした。受付で尋ねてみたが、何も知らないのでした。

"Neue Welt" Konzert und Ballhaus

Reviewed By Torsten U - Meerane, Germany

Ob zu Rock- oder Klassikkonzerten - die "Neue Welt" bietet stimmiges Ambiente, wobei die Inneneinrichtung natürlich zum Sinfoniekonzert oder Ballabend zum Tanz mehr passt. Wer es nicht von innen kennt: Bitte nicht von dem unscheinbaren Äußeren oder dem Foyer täuschen lassen, der Saal ist sehr schön und hat eine gute Akustik. Waren schon zu einigen Veranstaltungen, immer gern.
