Today with the Gunzenhauser Museum, home to around 2,500 artworks of classical modernism with one of the world’s largest Otto Dix collections.

Going one’s own way, a new way of thinking and doing anything unusual, makes the city and its people successful. For example the thermos flask or the first mild detergent were invented here. Currently machines and manufacturing plants are being planned and built here, helping production worldwide. The speciality of Chemnitz is developing ideas and manufacturing pieces more precisely, quickly and energy-efficiently.
