Mineral show terra mineralia

With 3,500 minerals, gemstones and meteorites, terra mineralia, a permanent exhibition of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, is the largest and most beautiful mineral show in all of Germany. Visitors from all over the world experience the treasures of the earth in an overwhelming presentation: a modern exhibition concept and the historical ambience of Freudenstein Castle let the minerals shine in a completely new beauty.

The most beautiful and magnificent exhibits from all parts of the world are arranged geographically: Visitors embark on a mineralogical journey around the world. The inexhaustible variety of colours and shapes as well as the sparkle and shine of the precious treasures from America, Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe astonish young and old and become an unforgettable natural experience.

Minerals from German sites are presented in the Mineralogical Collection Germany in the KRÜGERHAUS, right next to Freudenstein Castle. Wonderful and fascinating treasures from Germany await visitors - from mineral-rich Saxony to Saarland, from Schleswig-Holstein to the mountains of Bavaria.
