Since I accidentally hit the exit button, I had to start all over again.
It was cold and windy, but dry, until about 1 p.m., then more showers set in.
The paths were surprisingly easy to walk on, hardly any mud or worn out, even on those that had turned into streams there were enough stones and solid spots…

Today I decided to take the bus, but I got wet enough during the short walks in St. Andreasberg and after returning to Braunlage.
Note: public transport in the Harz Mountains is free with a guest card.
A particular highlight is the National Park House in St. Andreasberg (more info there). The open Evangelical…
Unfortunately without the predicted 🌤️, but cleared some more hiking stamps in an enchanting winter landscape.
Downside at the end: I walk to a stop from which I don’t have to change trains, but there is a sign from 2021 that the stop will not be served. So I take the next one (where I have to change…
The bus drove from Braunlage to the Oderteich for me alone, from there it mostly went lonely over untouched snow until the bus drove from the foot of the Stöberhai back to Braunlage for me alone.
An exciting tour where I never knew what to expect. Even if I only met a few hikers again, I was glad not to be the first, but to already find a trail. With about 20 cm of snow it would have taken even longer.
On the outskirts of Wernigerode, I quickly collected two hiking stamps: Himmelspforte monastery and spirit temple at the Lutherstein refuge.
"Mr. Luther is teaching himself today." That was my first thought when I saw the many benches. ... or is a sermon to be expected?
Since nobody else was there, I left…
When the weather was dry, the stamps HWN 109, 171 and seasonal stamp 202003 (via app) could be collected.
Holiday final round from Ilsenburg past the bark beetle path to the pigeon cliffs.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the Castle Church, which is well worth seeing.
Because of the adverse weather forecast, we first took the bus and train to the museum in Braunschweig. From 12:30 p.m., with a very brisk wind and loose clouds, we went on the hiking trail after all.
On the train I had thought of a stamp collection route from Bad Harzburg, but 24 km turned out to be…
Had only occupied the throne for a short time and paused Komoot and when it was supposed to continue, probably pressed the wrong button. 😬
The first hike from Braunlage almost fell through. Not because of rain, but because of a hunt. After having to walk past two closed paths, I had already turned back when I saw one of the hunting helpers busy dismantling various markers. He then gave the all-clear. And the rain held back. 😊
Even today the question was how will the paths be? But with about 5 cm of snow, all paths were easy to walk on. Unnecessarily, two were closed, but here, too, it was easy to get past the dead wood and clearing work on one of the paths had obviously been completed. Now I'm looking forward to the coffee in grandma's coffee shop.
