Walking and Nature
The Harz National Park is one of the largest forested national parks in Germany, comprising about ten percent of the total area of the Harz around the Brocken. The impressive natural landscape is reflected in the spectacular moors, granite cliffs, mountain rivers and streams.
Known as a paradise for hikers, Braunlage is the ideal starting point for walks and hikes across the borders of three federal states in and around the Harz National Park. Whether the Brocken, the "Green Belt", the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg or the Selketal-Stieg, guided by a national park ranger or on the trail of the lynx - the choice is yours!
