Automotive and Robert Schumann city

First documented in 1118, Zwickau is much more than just "a" Saxon town! Thomas Müntzer and Martin Luther preached here. Robert Schumann, Max Pechstein and Gert Fröbe are sons of the city. Silver and coal mining left their mark. Zwickau is best known as a city of automobiles.
