Welcome to the roof of "Vogtland"
(533 - 943 metres above sea level)
Klingenthal is situated right at the junction point where
3 counties meet – Bavaria, Saxony (Germany) and Bohemia
(Czech Republic). Our town lies in the highest region of
the mountain range landscape “Vogtland”.
Klingenthal was founded in 1591 when a hammer factory was
established in the valley. From the middle of the 17th century
onwards the manufacturing of musical instruments became
the major influence for the economical and social development
of the community.
1919 Klingenthal received its town charter and is since
called “Music Town Klingenthal”. Around 12.000
people live in our town today.
Are you looking for an activity holiday? How about hiking,
mountainbiking, tennis, skittles, swimming, sauna, massages
and last but not least skiing in the mountains of Klingenthal?
There are altogether 350 kilometres of well-developed and
marked hiking trails.
Here the winter is drawing near during late autumn already,
covering meadows and trees with a gentle white.
Our winter truly lasts longer than anywhere else! It is
possible for the snow to stay put until May when finally
the warm rays of the sun initiate spring.
Klingenthal – a paradise for hikers and lovers of
winter sports - lies in one of Germany’s most scenic
and charming mountain range landscapes. The well-developed
network of hiking trails leads through the extensive forest
areas of the Upper Vogtland, the Western Ore Mountains (“Erzgebirge”)
as well as into neighbouring Bohemia.
For both beginners and advanced Alpine skiers Klingenthal
offers numerous ski slopes with ski lifts, some of which
have floodlight facilities.
You have the choice of ski school, ski hire, toboggan runs,
artificial ice rink and horse-drawn sleigh rides to enrich
your winter vacation.
The network of cross-country ski runs and the “Kammloipe”,
the ski run from Schöneck via Klingenthal into the
Ore Mountains, as well as ski trails and snow-cleared hiking
trails have had their loyal followers for years.
