Tips

  • Harzer-Bergwald de

    The Eselsplatz is the first larger resting place for you, if you come over the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg from Osterode up here. In addition to a Köhlerhütte expect more seating, u.a. on two wooden donkeys that you can rehearse here;) If you are a follower of the Harzer hiking nobility, you will find a stamp office here. Are you looking for short, crisp climbs, then visit the donkey place from the Sösetalsperre or from Lehrbach.

    A beautiful stamp point that is worthwhile both in summer and in winter. The funny characters are fun for young and old. The ways to the stamp point are steadily increasing, but are well developed, so that a climb with children and possibly a cart / handcart is possible.

    The rest area gets its name from the donkey drivers, who supplied the miners in the Upper Harz area with grain from the Osteroder Kornmagazin.

    A beautiful kitten on the Harzer Hexenstieg. Unfortunately, the kitten is only accessible in the front area. The real kitten is locked.

    About 4.0km from the bleaching Osterode am Harz. From here many start the Harz Hexenstieg

    A nice trip in the snow. Due to the funny wooden figures a climb in the summer with children is definitely worth it. The way increases steadily, but is well developed.

    The donkeys were a bit battered during our visit, the rest area in itself beautiful, after the short but crisp steep climb great for a breather.

    Too bad only the rioters have ensured that, to protect the huts from destruction (!!!) 😠 Some of the beautiful kitten were shut off just behind the entrance.
    The cabins are primarily shelter cabins from bad weather, NO party zones.
    The civilization garbage can also be taken down from the mountain after the break.
