From the 16th to the 19th century, the Schneeberg ore field was the largest and most important cobalt ore mining site in the world. Of the many dressing plants that used to be here, the Siebenschlehen stamp mill remains. It belonged to the Siebenschlehen mine, which was first mentioned in the late 15th century. The plant was constructed between 1752 and 1753, and retains its original appearance. Today the stamp mill is used as a museum.
