"Sightseeing in Optician shop" Freiberg Off The Beaten Path Tip by german_eagle
Freiberg Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 72 photos
Whether you need new glasses or not, a visit in the optician shop "Brillenbar" at Obermarkt 8 is a good idea. The shop is in one of the most beautiful townhouses in Freiberg that goes back to the 15th century. During opening hours you're free to see the upstairs rooms (fake interest or ask nicely) with painted wooden ceilings from the 1490s and frescoes on the walls. There is also a large hall accessible from the stairwell that is similar to those in Görlitz's merchant houses.
I visited on European Heritage Day. The shop owner had some historic optician instruments on display, quite interesting but don't know if it was just temporary.
