The Vogtland Arena in Klingenthal has become the most popular destination in the area. The impressing, light and modern architecture of the large hill and the judge‘s steeple will attract you, no doubt about that.
After entering the Vogtland Arena, its multifunctional heart, the area where events of all kinds take place, will open up to you. The Arena accommodates up to 33,000 people. Your tour starts at the large hill‘s coasting, passing the small incline „WieLi" that conveniently gets you up to the judge‘s steeple. Up there, the highlight of your visit is waiting for you: the impressing panoramic view over the whole area of the Vogtland Arena.
During competition time, the capsule on top of the hill is used to limber up the athletes. Back in the large hill‘s coasting, the snack bar, the outdoor restaurant and the shop invite you to take a break.
