Be active or just stroll and linger

The spa town Bad Harzburg is surrounded by the National Nature Park Harz. Here you will find lovely hiking tours and great views while you dive into nature - and in winter the Harz offers everything that you could wish for from a winter paradise holiday. The "Burgberg" mountain is an interesting destination in Harzburg. To get to the summit you can either walk or take the cable car.
A great deal of history and various hiking routes are waiting for you here. You can also watch lynxes in their compounds at the "Rabenklippen" and learn more about them during regular show feedings.
Massive granite rocks in unusual shapes - the "Kästeklippen" high above the Okervalley are well worth a visit. While you are up there explore the nearby area where you can enjoy the fantastic view and find impressive rock formations shaped like i.e. an old man's face. A really special place!
Whether it is summer or winter, whether you prefer walking or hiking - explore the area on one of Bad Harzburg´s five themed walks. Try the "three-valley-tour" to start with, before you go for the rather demanding "devils track" leading up to the Brocken mountain.
