Local attractions

The central uplands make the Vogtland region a popular tourist destination. The “Vogtland-Switzerland” recreation area around the Pöhl reservoir is particularly attractive. The Pöhl reservoir is one of the largest summer recreation areas in Saxony and attracts people who want to swim, sail or surf. The officially recognised resort of Jössnitz, which is part of the Plauen district, is situated near the Pöhl reservoir. Under the heading ‘hiking – culture – sport’, visitors will find 17 hiking, cycling and riding routes on more than 100 km of well maintained paths.

A musical instrument maker has the task of bringing a piece of wood to life – and this requires great skill and craftsmanship. Markneukirchen in the Vogtland region is also known as “Saxon Cremona”, as it owes its world-wide fame as a music town to violin making. The Musical Instrument Museum in Markneukirchen is one of the most important of its kind in Europe. The collection includes about 3,000 instruments from all over the world.
