After the mining was hired in 1914, one of the world's first cavern power plants was built in the three-brothers shaft.

5. Hammerbrücke

Show sight on map

The historic Hammer Bridge, which is designated as a cultural monument and can only be passed on foot and by bicycle, spans the Freiberg Mulde 2 km east of the town centre of Freiberg. It was built in 1576 as a road bridge on the Chemnitz-Freiberg-Dresden road (Frankenstraße) as a stone pointed arch bridge. The bridge has a clear height of 10 m, a width of 7.30 m and an arch span of 13.80 m. After several repairs and because of the narrow road width, a new road bridge was built in 1928 200 m further upstream as a successor structure, over which today's Bundesstraße 173 runs. In the mid-1990s, a restoration took place again under cultural-historical aspects.
