Cycling through the hilly Vogtland means discovering deep green forests, magnificent panoramic views and idyllic lakes. The tranquillity of nature here alternates with picturesque villages and charming towns. As well as scenic highlights, you can also look forward to plenty of cultural ones. In this Collection, we’ve put together 10 different Tours – from a relaxed loop to a challenging, hilly bike Tour. If you fancy some help, simply hire an e-bike or bring your own.

Cycle through the Vogtland Musikwinkel area, where musical instruments have been made for over 350 years; stop at former mining sites; or soak up the atmosphere at fantastic castles. The Vogtland is characterised by a diverse landscape, dotted with challenging climbs, magnificent views, colourful summer meadows and blissfully shady valleys. You’ll also get to know the culinary delights of the region and taste plenty of local specialities in the countless inns and restaurants along the routes.

All 10 tours are designed as circular routes so you can start where you like. You can find out more about the local public transport network at vogtlandauskunft.de.
