Leisure and surrounding
Who would have guessed it? In 1883 the forester Arthur Ulrichs used skis of Norwegian design to check storm damages in the forests around Braunlage, thus the passion for skiing in Germany was born. In addition to all winter sports including alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, sledding, ice skating, watching ice hockey matches and ski jumping competitions, visitors can enjoy the Harz throughout the year.
Choose from a range of sporting activities, marked hiking trails and guided tours, the Kurpark with swing-golf and concerts in the summer months, canoe tours, traditional evenings, horse-drawn carriage rides and much more. The immediate surroundings you will discover cultural and tourist highlights such as the UNESCO World Heritage city of Goslar and Quedlinburg, the "colourful" town of Wernigerode, Germany's largest wooden church in Clausthal-Zellerfeld and the smallest one in Elend, the town under water that was rebuilt higher up, the Harz National Park House or the Llynx Station..... many opportunities to explore nature, culture and history.
