The 18-kilometre Brückenwanderweg trail links the two largest brick-built bridges in the world. From the Elster Viaduct (Elstertalbrücke), this easy to medium walk runs through the valley of the same name towards Steinicht. Passing small and large climbing rocks, the Devil’s Pulpit (Teufelskanzel) and the Nixenwiese meadow, the route reaches the “Ochsensprung” junction. The walk continues via Ruppertsgrün and Reimersgrün, and over the 511-metre Kuhlberg, with its restaurant and viewing tower. Following the path via Dungersgrün und Netzschkau, you eventually come to the end of the walk – the Göltzsch Viaduct (Göltzschtalbrücke), the largest brick-built bridge in the world.
You can easily travel to or from your walk by train. Timetable information is available from Verkehrsverbund Vogtland (Vogtland transport association).
