    The Bremke is 4.7 kilometers long and climbs 290 meters down to the confluence with the Warm Bode. It marked the entire border to the GDR on its entire course and today it marks the border to Saxony-Anhalt.

    In the early post-war years, this path was also known as the schnapps path. Schierker Feuerstein was smuggled to Braunlage and in return herring to Schierke. After the reunification and demolition of the watchtower standing here, this resting place for hikers was created in 1995 on the initiative of the Harz Club.

    After the unpleasant descent over the concrete slabs of the Grenzwegs the rest stop Kaffeehorst offers a welcome break. Here is a refuge and the stamp office No.18 of the Harz hiking nobility. Several information boards provide information about the hiking region and provide natural science education.

    Grenzweg Kaffeehorst, here is the stamp office 18 of the Harzerwandernadel. Easy to reach from the parking witch ride. From here you cross the river Bremke, once the border river between the GDR and the Federal Republic. Today the border between Saxony Anhalt and Lower Saxony.

    Old smugglers' club today people go stamping here.
    And it is essential to strengthen those who want to climb the Wurmberg.
    The climb is murderous 🥴😂

    Clear and steadily steeply ascending path to the large winter mountain and the Wurmberg plateau.
    The route was previously used by the border troops of the GDR for inspection trips
