Vogtland museum

The museum was opened 1923 in architectural precious buildings mainly built between 1787 and 1799 and first owned by wealthy cotton commodity dealers. It unfolded into rich collecting activities and public relations work and therefore became one of the most significant regional museums in Central Germany.

After widespread destruction during the end of WW II it has once again begun to develop great public appeal. Since the beginning of the 90s the building has been under intensive construction and restoration which will be completed in a few years which has limited the number of exhibition rooms in full operation.

Hermann Vogel house

A memorial for Hermann Vogel was inaugurated in the former home of the artist in Krebes after extensive work on the building and its garden. It used to be a memorial established by the museum in 1952 but had to be closed in 1961 due to the intensified border restrictions of the former GDR.
