The Vogtlandkreis is a Landkreis in the southwest of the Free State of Saxony, Germany, at the borders to Thuringia, Bavaria, and the Czech Republic. Neighboring districts are Hof, Saale-Orla, Greiz, Zwickau and Erzgebirgskreis. Plauen is the administrative center of the district.
The Vogtland became part of the Holy Roman Empire in the 12th century by king Conrad III. In 1209 the minister dynasty administrating the area was split into three areas, Weida, Greiz and Gera-Plauen. When the central power over the area decreased, county leaders, called in Latin advocatus or in German Vögte were appointed from local administrators. 1354-1357 the Vogtland war ended these leadership and the area changed ownership to Bohemia.
