More about the History of Marktredwitz

Marktredwitz was first mentioned in 1140 when a local noble family joined the family Redwitz. Redwitz came into the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1816 in an exchange with Austria. As part of the territorial reform Marktredwitz lost its status as a free city circle and was back in the county Wunsiedel (Wunsiedel vacation rentals | Wunsiedel travel guide) in 1972.

Located in Bavaria close to the Czech border, Markredwitz has a lovely Altstadt area, dominated by the town hall and St. Bartholomew's Church, which was built on the ruins of the town's old castle. Besides the scenic city center, the town also offers an interesting Schnapps Museum that is worth a stop. In addition to its historical beauty, Marktredwitz is a great location for outdoors enthusiasts because of the town's proximity to the Fichtelgebirge hills. During the winter, skiing opportunities attract large numbers of tourists to this area. If you find yourself in Marktredwitz during the warmer times of year, you may want to take advantage of the hiking trail that begins at the historic Gerber House. This trail is the longest premium hiking trail in Germany, and it covers a course of 400 miles to the city of Passau and back. Markredwitz also stands at the intersection of two long-distance bicycle trails: the "Donau-Naab-Saale" and "Main-Eger-Elbe" trails. If you are looking for a day trip opportunity, consider traveling 30 miles east to Bayreuth, the location of Richard Wagner's famed opera house. Also nearby is Selb, an important porcelain production area. The Porzellanikon houses exhibits that interpret the history of the porcelain industry in this region. The Fichtelgebirgsmuseum in Wunsiedel with its array of mineralogical exhibits is also worth a visit.
