The Best Hotels in the Harz

Mystical, pristine and full of enchanted legends: with its dense forests, babbling brooks and the legendary Brocken, the Harz mountains are an Eldorado for hikers and nature lovers. Small towns like Bad Sachsa, Torfhaus or Hahnenklee radiate a down-to-earth clarity that can only be found in the Harz. The towns are characterized by colorful half-timbering (Wernigerode), medieval castles such as the Kaiserpfalz in Goslar and city walls, which can be found for example in the Vorharz town of Osterode.
