The musical instrument making tradition in the Vogtland dates back over more than 350 years.
Alone in Klingenthal, Markneukirchen, Schöneck or Erlbach, there are more than 100 factories and workshops that build all kinds of musical instruments to this day. It is, therefore, no wonder that all corners of the Vogtland are filled with music, some louder than others, but always authentic.
Often the musical sounds echoing throughout the region are due to concerts, festivals or instrumental competitions. These are not only for visitors; music is an integral part of the region. The Vogtland without music is unimaginable. The musical tradition in the entire region has been alive for centuries.
