The quaint home of the “Sperken”.
Oelsnitz is one of the Vogltand’s larger cities with its 11,000 inhabitants, who are referred to as “Sperken’’ in the region. Located on the banks of the Weißen Elster, Oelsnitz is an optimal starting point for excursions into the multi-faceted Saxon, Bohemian, Bavarian and Thuringian Vogtland.

The city itself attracts those who love museums, music and architecture, and who come to view the “Zoelphelsches Haus”, St. Jacob’s Church or the striking city hall at the market square. For more than 750 years, Schloss Voigtsberg towers above Oelsnitz and today, is home to several museums and exhibitions that provide a glimpse into the Middle Ages.
