Find out more information about Zeitz, Germany – one of Prescott’s Sister Cities! In the 19th century, Zeitz was considered an important industrial center with factories producing everything from sugar and pianos to baby carriages and machinery. Beer brewing was also a major industry in Zeitz and has a long history with the town, which accounts for a labyrinth of underground passages dug in the 14th to 16th centuries. Here, beer was kept cool and ripened in barrels. Today, visitors can tour Unterirdisches Zeitz (The Zeitz Underground) and walk through the underground passageways and vaults.
