In the western Erzgebirge near Eibenstock, numerous monuments document the former tin mining and processing. In the impressive mining landscape, heaps from tin placer mining and water ditches for washing out minerals lie right alongside each other and still provide evidence today for above-ground tin placer mining. Completely excavated lodes and sinkholes are a record of underground tin mining. The extracted tin was processed in the surrounding hammer works, where a regional centre for tinplate production of European importance developed.
