Activities - Magical moments in the Harz Mountains


The colourful, multi-faceted town in the Harz

Our Gothisches Haus is located right next to the town’s market square and town hall. Explore the historic town centre with its carefully restored, wonderfully colourful and very special half-timbered buildings, including the Schiefes Haus, the Kleinstes Haus and the Krummelsches Haus. An absolute must-see attraction is the fairy-tale Wernigerode Castle and the castle gardens, which are part of the national ‘20 years of Saxony-Anhalt Garden Dreams’ project. The circular ‘Harz Garden Dreams’ hiking trail provides a great opportunity to combine a visit to the castle, terrace gardens and pleasure garden with a scenic hike.

Other attractions in and around Wernigerode


High up in the Harz

There’s plenty to discover for hikers and nature-lovers. A visit to Harz National Park and the Brocken – the highest point in Northern Germany – is a unique experience.  The summer solstice plus a circular hike up to the Brocken plateau, with views of the sky in all directions, is sure to open up some beautiful new horizons. The Brocken Garden is home to 1,500 high-altitude plants from around the world, which you can marvel at from May to October on guided tours. Discover new things on the Brocken summit tour with the national park ranger, run on weekends and public holidays. The Brockenhaus museum is home to an extensive exhibition on the history and natural world of the Brocken.

Experience nature around Wernigerode


Adventures for active people

Active guests and adventurers are sure to get their money’s worth in the Harz. The Titan RT suspension bridge, measuring 483 m long, stretches across the Bode reservoir and provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding area from 100 m in the air.

Directly below the suspension rope bridge, another exciting experience awaits you. The ‘GigaSwing’ is the most spectacular pendulum jump in Europe. Either alone or on a tandem jump, the Harz’s very bravest visitors take the leap into the void. After an exclusive free-fall experience, guests swing leisurely back and forth before being pulled back up to the platform.
