The city in a valley at the foot of the Erzgebirge mountains is part of the Saxon triangle metropolitan area that includes Leipzig-Halle and Dresden. With fewer than 100,000 inhabitants in the city, over 480,000 live in the greater metropolitan area. In the 14th century, a domestic hard-coal processing began.
