Whole pride of the 1270 founded little town of Burgstädt is the historic market which has almost been completely preserved since the middle age.
Most of the towns centre consists of small, narrow streets, alleys and half-timbered houses - most of them beautiful restored during the last decade.
Walk through the gate of the Seiger-tower and you reach the 1522 built church with its baroque altar master piece inside.
Up until 1882 the church did not have its 62 meter high tower. Because of the missing tower
the cities officials installed a clock (Seiger) at the gate tower in 1604. Henceforth it was given the name Seigertum (Seiger-tower).
