The Vogtland - symphony of nature

Right in the heart of the Vogtland - one of the most beautiful holiday regions. Vogtland means: 4 countries in one region - and the attractions for the holiday guest are correspondingly diverse. Spa triangle, endless hiking trails in a wonderful landscape, traditional musical instrument making, dams, Göltzschtalbrücke and Vogtlandarena.


With around 66,000 inhabitants, Plauen is the largest city in the Vogtland. It is full of emotions and experiences. It became world famous through the Plauen lace and the humorous picture stories with "Father and Son". Impressive buildings such as the old town hall with its renaissance gable and the Johanniskirche adorn the cityscape. The city beach and the nature on the Weißen Elster, developed bike paths, quaint cafés and pubs, interesting museums, lush forests and, last but not least, the proximity to the Pöhl dam make Plauen an attractive place to relax for residents and guests alike. From our Parkhotel you can start various tours through Plauen and the surrounding area. We are happy to help you plan your journey of discovery.


The Vogtland is an oasis of music, top quality and health. With its traditional musical instrument making, it is known as a sounding holiday region. The filigree Plauener Spitze ® is still made in the region today. Gentle hills, sweeping forests, gigantic bridges and romantic valleys invite you to go hiking and cycling. The Pirk, Pöhl and Falkenstein dams are popular recreational destinations with a high level of adventure. World-class sights want to be visited and admired. The Vogtland Arena in Klingenthal, the most modern large hill in Europe, is always worth a visit. Start your journey of discovery through the Vogtland comfortably from our Parkhotel! Due to our central location in the heart of Plauen, the hotel is the ideal starting point for this.

Pöhl dam

Sailors call it with a wink the “light wind area”, for the locals it is the “Vogtland Sea” and for vacationers a “natural paradise”. The Pöhl dam in the heart of the Vogtland has many facets. If you like rolling hills, rustic forests, spacious sunbathing lawns and natural bathing, then the Pöhl is the right place for you. Water sports enthusiasts and active vacationers will also find the best conditions around the dam.

There is a lot to discover and a lot of space to relax. Treat yourself to a steamboat ride, learn to surf or sail, and test your strength in the climbing forest! From the dam wall you go down many steps into the wild and romantic Triebal valley. The Elstertal and the impressive Elstertalbrücke are not far either. It is worth taking a short hike to the Mosenturm, from where you have a wonderful view of the dam and the Vogtland. Come and experience this refreshing region!


The Göltzschtalbrücke is the largest brick bridge in the world and the most famous attraction in the Vogtland holiday region. The impressive railway bridge, which was built in just five years in the 19th century, is a landmark of the Vogtland. It spans the picturesque Göltzsch valley between the towns of Mylau and Netzschkau. If you hike through the Göltzschtal, you will experience pure unspoilt nature: rocky steep banks and green floodplains, impact and sliding slopes, bank terraces, alder stands, forests and pastures line your path. Our Parkhotel team will be happy to help you plan your tour through the Göltzschtal.
