Silver sound & mountain cry

The secrets, life's work and lifestyle of the world-famous organ builder Gottfried Silbermann - spilled by his garrulous housekeeper Anna Magdalena Poltermann - are the focus of the guided tour through the historic Old Town.

You will be transported into the life and events of 18th century Freiberg. Because of its wealth in silver, the Silver City experienced a real boom at that time. History and "little stories" as well as legend and truth can sometimes get mixed up when Ms Poltermann gets going.

During the tour, you will taste a genuine Freiberg silver herb and a sample of the legendary Freiberg Eierschecke (cheese cake with egg custard). It is not only at this point that you will notice that the tour is delicious.
