The cathedral became the burial site of the Wettin dynasty, the ruling house of Saxony, in 1425. The old eastern portal was integrated into the new chapel. In the middle you see the tomb of Frederick I.. the tomb slabs are probably from Peter Vischer:

Freiberg
Next stop is Freiberg in the Ore Mountains. Freiberg, and not Freiburg, was founded in 1168 as a miners town and soon became the biggest and richest town of the Margraviate of Meissen. Freiberg wasn't destroyed in WW2.
