|Location of the community Weischlitz in the Vogtland district|
The area of the municipality Weischlitz is located in the Vogtland , in a wooded hilltop landscape with fields and meadows, in the outer southwest of the Free State of Saxony , bordering Bavaria and Thuringia . After leaving the Pirk dam , the White Elster flows through the districts of Kürbitz and Weischlitz .
The districts of Weischlitz belong to:
As a result of the GDR border security, the following places were destroyed: Markusgrün , Schwarzenreuth and Stöckigt . Ramoldsreuth was destroyed in the course of the construction of the Dröda dam (1964–1971).
The neighboring communities are Rosenbach / Vogtl. , Plauen , Oelsnitz / Vogtl. , Bösenbrunn and Triebel / Vogtl. (all Vogtlandkreis ), Feilitzsch and Trogen in the Bavarian district of Hof as well as Gefell and Tanna in the Thuringian Saale-Orla district .
Weischlitz was first mentioned in a document in 1274 . The places Ober- and Unterweischlitz belonged to the Plauen office until the 19th century . The establishment of Rodersdorf, first mentioned in 1266, probably goes back to the time when the Vogtland was settled by the Slavs and Sorbs in the 7th and 8th centuries. The village of Kürbitz , first mentioned in a document in 1225, also gives evidence of Slavic settlement - "-itz" is a place name ending of Slavic origin. In earlier times, the Heinersgrün district was owned by the von Feilitzsch noble families from Upper Franconia and Vogtland . In 1812 Napoleon's troops also reached the town of Dröda and caused great damage to the population there with arson and looting.
