The village of Wilischthal is situated in the wooded valley of the river Zschopau. Close by, the small stream Wilisch and the river meet and the settlement is located next to the road from Zschopau to Wolkenstein where a forest car park is available.
Above that, you can get to the neighbouring villages of Gelenau, Weißbach and Schlösschen easily. From the local train station you can get on the train from Chemnitz to Bärenstein (Weipert/ Vejprty; Czech Republic) and enjoy a scenery ride through the valley.
Due to historical developments, parts of Wilischtal belong to different administrations. The houses built on the road to Scharfenstein are part of Zschopau.
