Representing the central market of Freiberg the upper market has been a hotspot for trade and transport as well as for historical occurrences of town- and Saxon history.
Representing the central market of Freiberg the upper market has been a hotspot for trade and transport as well as for historical occurrences of town- and Saxon history such as the public and historically important execution (1455) of the noble man KUNZ VON KAUFUNGEN who abducted the princes ERNST and ALBRECHT. Until present day the upper market is used for diverse major events, amongst courtesy visits or miners’ parades. The market excels in its closed fronts of three- and four-storeyed residential houses from 15th and 16th century featuring steeply inclined, multi-storey saddle roofs. The place marks the climax in urban building development of the historic centre of Freiberg. With respect to architecture it stands for the most valuable market place in Saxony.
