Model of the city of Zwickau in the late 16th century

Scale 1:500, designed by Herbert Drechsel/Zwickau, realization by Modellbau Plauen, around 1970

This model impressively demonstrates how Zwickau looked like at the beginning of the modern age: well-fortified with moat, double wall, four city gates and its central-city buildings.
