The panorama tour starts after the roundabout at the IFA holiday park and leads initially over the Kirchsteig, then along the forest paths past the Muldenberg dam. It is definitely worth taking a detour to the accessible dam wall or taking a break at one of the three restaurants. We follow the path through the village and reach the Werda dam on dreamy forest paths. We also pass Werda and drive back to Schöneck. On the outskirts, the Haselmühle leisure area invites you to take a short break. The road continues, past the market square and the church, from Schöneck towards Eschenbach. At the "Bockmühlen" we turn left into the forest path and get to the valley station of the ski lifts, cross the slope and follow the path further up to the IFA holiday park. This tour ends with the great panoramic view over the Vogtland.

Turn-by-turn directions

Our tour starts at the Bikewelt Schöneck. From there we drive eastwards on Klingenthaler Straße, then we turn right into the forest. The next 2 km we are on a gravel path parallel to the road, then we cross it and choose the long straight to the northeast.

We ignore smaller junctions and only turn left at the second slightly larger intersection. This way we get to the Muldenberg dam. After a short stretch along the road, it goes back into the forest. We cross the Silberbach and make a loop through the Muldenberg nature reserve. The "Untere Floßgraben" then leads us to the center of the village; behind the last houses we leave the main street again to the left.

After a little loop to the south we come to the train tracks, which we follow for a moment. Then a longer straight takes us west. We now turn right into the "Heuweg", cross the street on it and keep straight ahead at the next junction. So we finally reach "Siehdichfürer Straße", where we turn left and reach the Geigenbach barrier via Neudorf.

Our next stop is Werda, after crossing the town center we choose a shady forest path that takes back to Schöneck. If you still have strength in your legs, you can take the detour to the south, which leads through the FFH area in Tiefen Grund.
