The Schinderbrücke, which leads over the Rote Weißeritz, is 230 years old and has been preserved as good as the original.
The chronicle reports that the Schinderbrücke was built from 1789 to 1790 and replaced a wretched wooden bridge. Near the Schinderbrücke there used to be the knacker's (Schinder's) homestead for the Altenberg office. The old Zinnstrasse, which led from Altenberg to Freiberg and where there was heavy traffic in the 18th century, went over this bridge. In addition to tin, charcoal in particular was transported for the Freiberg smelting works. The bridge survived all floods. In 1992 the building was reconstructed. The bridge is a listed building.
