Silver deposits gave the Erzgebirge their name, and mining has had a great impact upon the historical development of the region. The silver ribbon still encircles the entire area, from the university city of Freiberg to the mining and Adam-Ries city of Annaberg-Buchholz and the school city of Schneeberg.
