The German Aerospace Exhibition, which reopened in new premises in Morgenröthe-Rautenkranz, is well worth a visit.

Picture-book scenery with a thousand views

The Vogtland Panorama Weg starts at the top! The biggest brick bridge in the world, Göltzschtalbrücke marks the start of this 220km trail through the Vogtland region.

Lovely valley plains, dramatic rocky valleys, castles, palaces, spas, panoramic views and other attractions line the 220km Vogtland Panorama Weg® on its way from Göltzschtalbrücke bridge, through Plauen to the Saxon state spa resorts close to the border with the Czech Republic. From Saxony's deep south, the leafy circular trail then takes on a whole new character as it passes through dense coniferous forests to lofty summits affording spectacular panoramic views of Klingenthal on its way back to the biggest brick bridge in the world.

The first stage of this tour of Saxony's Vogtland region takes walkers down the valley and along the Göltzsch and White Elster rivers to just outside the lace-making town of Plauen. To the south of Plauen, the Vogtland hills give way to the Elstergebirge mountains on the German-Czech border. Here, you'll find the magnificent thermal spa resorts of Bad Elster and Bad Brambach.

Leaving the towns behind, you can enjoy amazing panoramic views from the densely wooded uplands of the Upper Vogtland region around Markneukirchen and Klingenthal. The wide open countryside around Markneukirchen is known as the Vogtland's 'musical corner'. Set against a stunning backdrop of gently rolling fields, meadows filled with colourful flowers and wooded hills, the town owes its fame to Bohemian violin makers.

With every step, you'll notice the hills becoming ever steeper and the first mountains blocking the views of Klingenthal. Vogtland Arena, home to one of Europe's largest and most modern ski jumps, is located here. Schneckenstein rock on Kielberg hill is one of only two topaz outcrops in the world. The hills gradually tail off on the way down to Rodewisch and Reichenbach where the trail ends.
