In July 1813 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe hiked along the Aschergraben from Zinnwald to Altenberg. A memorial that was erected here in 1913 commemorates this excursion.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe stayed in the summer of 1813 for a spa stay in the Bohemian Bad Teplitz (Teplice / CZ). From here he went between July 10 and 12, 1813 on an excursion to Zinnwald and Altenberg. This fulfilled his long-cherished wish to visit this area for geological studies and to collect minerals and to expand his knowledge of tin mining in the Eastern Ore Mountains.

 

After inspecting the Zinnwald mine dumps, Goethe set off for Altenberg on July 11, using the scenic path along the Aschergraben. To commemorate his trip to Altenberg and to honor his great artistic and scientific achievements, a memorial stone was erected on the 100th anniversary of his trip at Aschergraben, which was inaugurated on August 3, 1913. In 1992 the now neglected memorial was moved to its current location and redesigned.
