Description

With a length of 289 kilometres this hiking trail leads through three federal states and four holiday destinations including possible detours to the Czech Republic. It sets off in Altenberg-Geising in the eastern part of the Ore Mountains and takes hikers through the Vogtland to Blankenstein in Thuringia. Ramblers wanting even more can continue from this hiking hub that connects to the “Rennsteig“, “Frankenweg“ and “ Fränkischer Gebirgsweg “ trails.

The Ore Mountains-Vogtland Ridgeway is the right place if you want to get away from everything and leave your mobile, emails and the daily grind behind. Hikers will experience unspoilt flora and fauna and be surprised by the beauty of the scenery. And there’s more along the way such as 23 museums, demonstration work shops for the traditional arts and crafts of the Ore Mountains as well as remnants of the region’s old mining industry such as galleries, show mines and visitor shafts.
