Wrecked Village Königsmühle

In the Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge) in Sudetenland, remains of dozens of villages can be found. Before the second Wolrld War, only Germans lived for many years in Sudentenland. After the expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia at the end of the Second World War, many of their towns were wrecked. Remains of these still are visible on many locations.
