Elsterperlen Trail


The hike along the certified Elsterperlen Trail is a 72 km-long expedition through the north-eastern part of the Vogtland and the Elstertal in the middle. Along both sides of the Weißen Elster, the loop trail takes you from the historic residential city of Greiz to Neumühle and Wünschendorf, the cradle of the Vogtland.

On the way, hikers pass through dreamy villages, historic towns and unique buildings, which include the 100-year old St. Vitus Church, the Mildenfurth monastery or the historic covered wooden bridge in Wünschendorf.

Greiz is definitely worth an extended visit that should not be left out with its internationally-known Greizer Park, the Obere Schloss and the Untere Schloss complete with museum and St. Mary’s Church.
