Schöneck is also known as „Vogtland's balcony ", it is the highest town of the Vogtland.

The historical origin of Schöneck is the rock "Alter Söll", which is a well known and loved view point. Exposed parts of an old archway and two beer cellars at the end of the former mountain from the 14th century, testify the ancient history. On top of the rock, 734m high above sea level, a miraculous panorama is being exposed to the Elstergebirge in the south, Fichtelgebirge in the west and the Thüringer woods in the northwest. They say with a clear view and good eye one saw the Völkerschlacht monument in Leipzig once.
