Nestled in the green valley of the Weißen Elster, the cityscape is characterized by well-kept houses, the school, the heritage-protected market place, city hall and the vicarage, as well as the St. Laurentius Church. Additionally, a place for convalescence and relaxation is the perfectly situated spa in the forest of the Tremnitzgrund. Through its beautiful rural location, Elsterberg and its surrounding are a destination for many hikers. Well-marked hiking paths lead to the Kriebelstein and the “Steinicht.” The Kriebelstein is 130m above the town and offers stunning panoramic views. The Vogtland Panorama Weg ® and the main “Vogtland” hiking path run through many kilometres of the Elsterberger Flur. Cyclists, too, will get their money’s worth here.
