On this hike through Eschenbach down to Hermsgrün and on the Kammweg back to Schöneck, we overcome more than 300 meters in altitude.
Distance 17.3 km
Highest point767 m
Lowest point484 m
We cross the landscape on narrow village streets, dreamy villages line our way. The Moritz-Quelle (a spring), the "Pferdekopf-Steinkreuz" or the Färberlöcher are contemporary witnesses of old stories from the Vogtland.
The Moritzquelle invites you to take a short break. You will find a wonderful view of the green forests of the Upper Vogtland.
We start our tour at the lookout rock "Alter Söll". From up here you have a great panoramic view of the area through which our hike leads. We follow the yellow marking and leave Schöneck over the Galgenberg to Eschenbach. At the Kunsthaus Eigenregie we turn right and come to Saalig via village streets. The now green marking leads us via Hermsgrün to Wohlbach. It is worth taking a detour to one of the oldest village churches in the Vogtland. We leave the village on the Kammweg and return to Schöneck.
