Meißen, the “cradle of Saxony”, attracts thousands of tourists year after year visiting the numerous places of interest of the city. It requires solid and safe paths to be able to reach these attractions of Meißen.

Traffic in the old town of Meißen rolls over historical granite slabs and pavement surfaces without any exception. The footpaths are mainly build of granite slabs in combination with small sett pavers, on roads and places you mostly find large sett pavers made of red Meißen granite or other hard stone from the immediate vicinity.

Preservation and renovation measures are carried out on a continuous basis. The rehabilitation measures are not only limited to the traffic areas, supply lines and waste disposal lines lying underneath the traffic areas are involved as well. Quite often it is the ramschackle substrate which forces to act just like in case of the alley Marktgasse, one of the arterial roads for foot and supply traffic in the old town.
