Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The wild and romantic Bodetal is one of the highlights of every Harz visit. It is one of the oldest nature reserves in Germany, in which the Bode has created a gorge-like valley. Since 1820, a trail leads through the previously inaccessible wilderness. Overall, the Bodetal is 9km long, just before Thale about 280 meters deep. Here tower the imposing rocks of the Roßtrappenberg and the opposite Hexentanzplatzes in the air (and reward a climb with a breathtaking view).
The Bodetal, sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the Harz. A terrific section on the Harz-Hexenstieg from Treseburg to Thale. In the winter months from Nov. - April closed. Why ? But nobody has any interest. At the restaurant Königs Ruhe you can leave the HHS and take a great, very challenging climb to the Hexentanzplatz.
