Explore Marktredwitz

We start at the market, the birth place of this town and see the historic City Hall dating back to the 14th century with a beautiful Renaissance Jutty from 1592. Behind the St.-Bartholomäus-Church (14th – 16th century) we discover Lug ins Land which can be translated as look at the land. This is the oldest building of Marktredwitz in form of a tower, dating back to the 13th century and is the rest of the ancient castle. Near by we discover another architectural treasure, the St.-Theresien-Church, (Rococo, 1776/1767) which was founded by Empress Maria Theresa for the stationed Austrian Garrison at that time. Now we turn right and walk through the market passing beautiful houses from the late Baroque area and partly replaced after huge fires in the years 1822 and 1836 by Neo-Classical and Biedermeier style fronts.

Continuing our stroll along the Hirschmannstrasse we will see the new City Hall which was build in 1794 for residential purpose. It was that house where Johann Wolfgang von Goethe staid as a gust when he visited Marktredwitz from the 13th to the 18th of August 1822. Take the chance and visit the Goethezimmer where a collection of paintings and items are on display to remind every visitor of the good old times.

Many more sights are waiting to be explored and you might want to take a break at the Goldene Löwe (golden lion) the oldest tavern in town before continuing your stroll through the streets of Marktredwitz.

If you don’t like to take that trip on your own you can join the official guided tour including an ascent of the tower. Those tours are organized between May and October each year and start every Saturday morning at 10:00 am. Meeting point is the Tourist Information office.
