The Brockenbahn is a predominantly tourist used, meterspurige railway line of the Harz narrow gauge railways (HSB). It leads from Drei Annen Hohne on the Harzquerbahn over Schierke on the Brocken. A highlight, if you meet someone - great atmosphere!

For most hikers the first breather after the more or less strenuous climb. Various small stone projections and the width of this place invite you to take a break.
The HSB locomotive is regularly reassigned to the top of the tracks. A nice spectacle.

The Brockenbahn is a mainly touristically used railway line of the Harz Narrow Gauge Railways (HSB). It leads from Drei Annen Hohne at the Harzquerbahn over Schierke on the Brocken.
The track is steam-powered, and its steam pipes, which can be heard far through the forest, make up the special background noise of every hump.

You pass the Goethebahnhof from the west on the way to the summit. Here you can also hear and see the Brockenbahn for the first time. A few meters further you will have first fantastic views over to Torfhaus deep into the West Harz. Maybe you can say what the seating at Goethebahnhof looks like?
