With hands on the brakes, feet on the pedals and a concentrated look ahead; as in many parts of Germany, bikers
will only discover the true magic of the Harz by cycling through its mountainous landscape.
A rapid change between stick and stone, mountain and river- only cyclists will be able to see the entire beauty
of nature, which remains hidden to others. Light green deciduous forests and deep ravines whisk by. Lively change
between forest roads, steep gravelled paths, narrow trails, rocky passages, adventure trails with jumps and turns
and then a soft forest floor on which the wheels roll almost without any help. In the Harz National Park, cyclists
will enjoy complete silence as well as the beauty of pristine wilderness, rugged cliffs and unexpected views.
Only a few miles further, impressive cultural monuments, cosy little towns and peculiar ditches, which are the
remains of a long mining tradition, are integral parts of the landscape. A mountain-bike tour in the Harz leaves
impressions, which could hardly be more exciting. For this reason, many cyclists are of the opinion that the Harz
is the best mountain-bike region in northern Germany. Owing to the variety of well-marked trails, everyone will
find a suitable route; from short and easy, to long and exhausting, high up or downhill.
Experience the special thrill of the Harz!
Get out there: enjoy the pure silence with just the gentle sound of cracking branches while breathing in the
scent of pine needles. On a leisurely walk, through the forest on a lazy Sunday afternoon or during an energetic
hike along the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg, here in the Harz you can enjoy your holiday with all your senses. A well-marked
network of more than 8,000km rambling trails, changes the Harz into a hikers paradise. Whether short or long
distances, narrow paths, well-maintained hiking trails, challenging or easy tours- in the Harz, everyone finds
the right way. The legendary Brocken is just one of many highlights of the adventurous long distance hiking trail,
which runs through the Harz and across the Harz National Park. Not only fans of fairy tales and legends will
enjoy walking along the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg; the magical landscape of the Harz will also fascinate nature lovers
