The Vogtland Reeves' Cultural Trail invites you to discover the historic Vogtland. Churches, castles and palaces, weir systems, market squares and city walls herald a medieval heyday in which the reeves (reeve: Vogt) of Weida, Plauen and Gera were in charge. They founded the Vogtland around 900 years ago as servants of the German emperor. The cultural trail pays tribute to these former sovereigns and their cultural heritage as a new tourist offer. The Vogtland is a cultural landscape that is worthy to discover. Along the river Weiße Elster as well as on the rivers Saale, Göltzsch and Eger there are outstanding architectural testimonies from the Middle Ages such as the Osterburg in Weida or the former Imperial Palace in Eger, but also romantic castle ruins and small chapels away from the cities Discover Vögte and get to know up to 150 sights of the region between Thuringia, Saxony, Bavaria and Bohemia. If you want to get to know the most important sights on a short trip, the main route is from Gera via Greiz, Schleiz, Hof and Plauen to Eger
