    It was an extra kilometer after the climb, but it was worth it. There are benches to relax and enjoy.

    Accessible in both directions and you can't actually get lost. If necessary, ask, there are enough people walking around here ;-)

    The Brocken circular hiking trail in the border area of Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt is an excellent panorama trail leading from the Brocken train station through the slopes and to the highest peak in the north of Germany.

    Almost two million people visit the Brocken annually, but despite mass tourism, the fascination of this exceptional mountain, which takes its name from the break and moorland areas on the western slope, is unbroken from a hiking perspective - provided you get up early.
    Up until the end of the 19th century, the ascent to the Brocken was relatively natural on foot, on horseback or on mules; from 1885 a horse-drawn bus drove up the Brocken every day when there was no snow, and rail traffic was opened in 1898: the Brocken Railway runs up to ten times a day the highest Harz summit and hurls its clouds of smoke into the forests of the national park.

    Attention! A cold wind often blows up there! A hat and windproof jacket also damage in early summer / summer

    Once around the Brocken. Depending on how the sun is, you can photograph the Brockenturm from all sides on this round.

    The circular route on the Brocken plateau is a pleasure in summer and torture in winter, but it is part of every visit to the highest north German peak ...
