    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.

    Bodetal is called the valley of the warm and cold Bode in the resin. In the narrower sense, only the ten-kilometer, gorge-like valley section of the Bode between Treseburg and Thale is called Bodetal.

    The Bodetal is unique in the Harz. Wandering and wondering.

    Especially when you walk from Wendefurth, you experience how the gently and quietly babbling Bode rises up to the rushing river and begins to thunder through the ever-narrowing Bode Gorge.

    Steep rock faces, deep ravines, and the Bode with Bodekessel - very impressive.

    Here you can hike wonderfully. The Bodetal is a mixture of the Breitachklamm near Oberstdorf and the Grand Canyon.
