The city of Aue honors and maintains its cultural traditions. You can convince yourself about that during a visit in the city museum. Without the kaolin from Aue there wouldn´t be any Meissen porcelain. Simply for that it is worth visiting the hiking trail with displays on mining, including the Vestenburg tunnel and the "Weisse Erdenzeche" (white pit). The paint factory for blue colours and the cobalt blue from Aue were famous as well. The motto of the city is to maintain the knowledge of the traditional old trades and crafts and to support the new arts as well. During interesting events in the cultural centre and in the art gallery in Aue insights are given and impressions are imparted upon both guests and citizens as well.
