The Achtermannshöhe is the fourth highest mountain in the Harz Mountains. It lies, so to speak, in the slipstream of the Brocken and of course enables a fantastic view of the big brother. The ascent from the parking lot in Oderbrück is rather a moderate walk. To be honest, it has to be said that the area around the Achtermannshöhe is very heavily infested with the bark beetle and the forest here is less beautiful. However, the panoramic view is fantastic.
The most beautiful thing is a visit to the Achtermannshöhe at sunrise. Then the sun comes up directly behind the Brocken.

One of the most fantastic viewpoints ever. From the Achtermannshöhe you have a 360 ° view over the Harz. Brocken, Wurmberg or Torfhaus seem just a stone's throw away. Snack in this place is a must! At the foot of the height there is a refuge.

From the tree-free summit of Achtermannshöhe you have a wonderful distant view of the Upper Harz, especially the Brocken and the Wurmberg. An absolute must for hikers. Depending on the route from Oderbrück or Königskrug, sturdy shoes and sure-footedness are advised; in particular, the final climb from the stamp site is not easy in wet / slippery conditions despite the railing.

An absolute must for hikers in the Upper Harz. The last part of the summit climb is sometimes very difficult to manage in winter, despite the railings. Summit very promising in all directions, but especially to the Wurmberg and Brocken. Particularly beautiful: the steam clouds of the HSB locomotives.
