Mining in the Schneeberg Mining Landscape dates back to as early as the 15th century. Lines of heaps that follow underground ore lodes bear witness to this today. Many of the 18th- and 19th-century dressing works, surface installations and smelteries have been preserved. They convey an impression of silver and cobalt ore mining. Filzteich, the oldest man-made pond in the region, was created in order to operate the many water-driven machines in the mines.
