The Harz Witches Trail
Just a short journey from Berlin the Harz mountains rise from the North German Plain, creating an area of natural beauty, dominated by the towering dome of Brocken, the highest peak in the Harz Mountain region. This off the beaten track part of Germany is crisscrossed with impeccably waymarked walking trails, filled with atmospheric forests making it a truly awe-inspiring destination to hike in.
The Harz Witches Trail is a National Trail that traverses the Harz Mountains and National park from West to East from Osterode to Thale taking in evergreen and coniferous forests, rocky canyons, towering cliffs, medieval half-timbered villages and also sees you walk up the famous Broken. This area is famous for fairy tales and folklore which creates a wonderful atmosphere to walk in.
