Chemnitz as a "City of Modernity" is a town with many faces. The third largest city in Saxony with about 242.000 inhabitants possesses modern architecture drawing a line to jewels of classical modernism. Art and culture are modern: in earlier times with the expressionist artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, who was born in Chemnitz, or the Bauhaus school's icon Marianne Brandt.

For example the first mild detergent were invented here.
