Zchopau and Schloss Wildeck offer the traveler an excellent chance to see an old German market town. The castle has a huge donjon (or keep) which is five or six stories tall and offers a panorama of the entire valley; the view is well worth the stairs. Zschopau's market district, adjoining the Schloss, is an excellent site for shopping and acquiring the famed Erzgebirge Nutcrackers and Smokingmen. I recommend making a day trip, visiting Burg Scharfenstein, Augustusburg, and any of the regions small castles if time allows. (see Burg Scharfenstein for more information).
