Klingenthal

The name Klingenthal translates as the "valley of blades", a reminder that the royal weapons factory was founded here in 1776. A museum dedicated to this industry highlights the blade manufacturing process, the expertise of workers in Klingenthal and displays a very fine collection of sabres, swords and sheathes, as well as kitchen knives and tools.
