Historic locations

Joseph’s Cross

On top of the “Großer Auerberg” mountain, just a few minutes away from Schindelbruch, a special look-out point awaits you: the biggest double cross in the world with  agorgeous panorama over the Southern Harz.

Brocken railway

Who says that hiking up the Brocken mountain has to be strenuous? Going by the historic steam trains of the Brocken railway is as comfortable as it is romantic - not to mention great fun for the children!

Sondershausen castle

Are you looking for an elegant contrast to the wild nature and age-old castle ruins? Why not visit one of the most beautiful castles in Thuringia – a house with proud past and a very musical present.


Stolberg is a real pearl in the Southern Harz: nestling in the forests and mountains lined with old half-timbered houses, crowned by its town castle and shaped by a long and eventful history!

Kyffhäuser Monument

On the top of Kyffhäuserburgberg things are majestic: Friedrich Barbarossa meets Wilhelm I., the fundaments reach 900 years back to the past and nature lovers are being awaited by a truly sublime panorama.
