Walk in Zwickau, Germany

Walk in Zwickau, Germany

Zwickau, the fourth-largest city of Saxony in Germany after Leipzig, Dresden and Chemnitz. The West Saxon city is situated in the valley of the Zwickau Mulde (Zwickauer Mulde).

The name of the city is of Sorbian origin and may refer to Svarog, the Slavic god of fire and of the sun. Zwickau has a rich history dating back to the Middle Ages when it was an important trading center.

Zwickau is the seat of the West Saxon University of Zwickau (German: Westsächsische Hochschule Zwickau) with campuses in Zwickau, Markneukirchen, Reichenbach im Vogtland and Schneeberg (Erzgebirge). The city is the birthplace of composer Robert Schumann.

We start our walking tour right at the Robert Schuman monument. As we walk through the city, we will see both the historical and modern aspects of Zwickau.

There are many beautiful buildings in the city center, such as the Gothic-style St. Mary’s Church, which dates back to the 15th century, and the Renaissance-style town hall, which was built in the 16th century.

We circle the city center, get out to the Schwanenteichpark in the western side of the city. Walking back to the city center we also see some street art.

Our tour leads again through the city’s streets towards to the Zwickauer Mulde on the eastern side of the city center. We walk a bit on the Muldenpromenade before we end our tour near our starting point – at Zwickau’s market square.
