Hiking the Harz Mountains

The Harz Mountains are a hidden treasure in the heart of Germany.

The Harz Mountains offer a vast array of adventures at any time of the year and will delight every age group. Nature enthusiasts come across beautiful wilderness in unspoilt forests, deep valleys, wild rivers and blossoming mountain meadows on over 9,000 kilometres of signposted hiking trails.

However, for a complete vision of Germany's northernmost mountain range, nothing beats an exploratory tour for a close encounter with the region's culture and history. Think picturesque, historic half-timbered towns, countless relics from the mining era, mysterious caves, old castles, spiritual places and nostalgic steam trains.
