Chemnitz Things to Do: 64 reviews and 193 photos

As mentioned in my "Look out for art" tip, the "Four Times of the Day" are one particularly beautiful group of statues. Mistaken often for the four seasons, these statues symbolize the four times of the day, i.e. morning, noon, evening and night. Female figures depict different scenes taking place during the specific time of the day.

The statues were built from 1863 to 1868 by Johannes Schilling and were originally made to be put up in Dresden. After some time there, they suffered considerably due to the damp air rising from river Elbe. They were then donated to Chemnitz.

Directions: Schlosspark - coming from Hartmannstraße, you will pass by the statues
