Experience the pristine nature, the charm of the small Vogtland villages and enjoy the great views on this varied tour around Schöneck. The Kneipp basin at the valley station of the chair lift invites you to take a break for your feet and your soul. The facility can be used free of charge from May to October.

Author’s recommendation

Use the comfortable ascent with the help of the 4-seater chairlift in the summer months. A grandiose panoramic view of the vastness of the country and of the city of Schöneck compensates for many a hardship.

Tips and hints

It is worth making a detour to the cigar and local history museum in Schöneck, the Haselmühle leisure area with playground or a visit to the castle gardens in the Schilbach manor, especially when the rhododrons are in bloom in May. In the area of the IFA holiday park there are numerous leisure activities such as a climbing forest, adventure pool or bowling alley. You can also find the Bikewelt Schöneck and the tourist information here.You can find further information on our homepage:http://www.schoenck-vogtland.de/

Destination

Albertplatz Schoeneck

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour at Albertplatz in Schöneck. This is where the legend fountain is located, which tells the story of how Schöneck came into being. Along the main road and through the “Am Sohr” residential area, you leave the village in the direction of Schilbach. At the "Haselmühle Leisure Area" you can make a short stopover, take a swing in the playground or just enjoy the peace and quiet. We follow the green markings and walk across the Birkenhäuser settlement, which is a little out of town, down to the Schilbach district of Schöneck. We leave Schilbach again along the old Eschenbacher Landstrasse and come back to Schöneck via the Bockmühle.

 

In the "Hüttenwirt" you can get plenty of energy before you head back up to Schöneck for the last few meters. The path leads directly to the IFA holiday park and the Schöneck Tourist Info Center, as well as the Vogtlandbahn stop . Here the benches invite you to take a short rest. Or you can reward yourself with a nice piece of home-baked cake in Ellie's coffee shop on the main street.
