  • Zwickau city (Zwickau county)
    Jaume Ollé, 11 Sep 1999

    The names of the municipalities contain a number of spelling mistakes, and some have become renamed or incorporated into other municipalities. This is a list of corrections/updates:

    • Annaberg: incorporated into Annaberg-Buchholz
    • Bärenstein: there are three locations with this name in Saxony, one of them is a city, Bärenstein im Osterzgebirge in the county Weißeritzkreis.
    • Bergiebrubel: I can only guess that this means Berggießhübel, a town which has become incorporated into Bad Gottleuba-Berggießhübel.
    • Brand: there are several of these: Brand bei Zwickau (part of Zwickau), Brand-Erbisdorf (town near Chemnitz) and Brand bei Hohnstein (part of Hohnstein).
    • Geising: the words nachwishar seit should read nachweisbar seit, meaning 'verifiable since'
    • Gottleuba: now part of Bad Gottleuba-Berggießhübel
    • Johlstadt: probably Jöhstadt (?)
    • Lauenstein: now part of Geising
    • Limbach: now part of Limbach-Oberfrohna
    • Neustadt: ambiguous, there are at least two towns of this name in Saxony: Neustadt in Sachsen, and Neustadt im Vogtland
    • Schandau: renamed to Bad Schandau
    • Tralheim: probably Thalheim is meant?
    • Wehlen: complete name Stadt Wehlen
    • Zoblitz: now part of Reichenbach/OL
