Tavern „Das Paradies“

Legend has it that Luther was lured into an ambush by irate Franciscans during a visit to Zwickau. As he was unable to fend off the attack by these armed monks, he fled across the bridge to the other side of the Mulde and took refuge in the nearest tavern.

Once inside, he is said to have exclaimed: “Thank God that he let me find this house. For verily, it was to be my paradise.” From that date on, the inn has been called Das Paradies, but in any case, the name is quite apt because of its idyllic location.
