    The Eckersprung is located in the former border area. Here the Ecker rises and later finds its way out of the Harz towards the Oker. A rest area with benches is spacious. A shelter with the stamp number 136 of the Harz hiking pin is available as a refuge for the hiker in bad weather.

    The Eckersprung, the source of the Ecker, is located at a rest area directly on the Goetheweg, which leads from the gatehouse slightly uphill to Brocken.

    Here the hike from Torfhaus ended until 1989 - then the border fence and the restricted area around the Brocken came, which made a continuation of the hike impossible. Today, nature is protected along the former border as a Green Belt and, as a green corridor, establishes the important link to the normal landscape. An important contribution to species protection for animals and plants.

    The Eckersprung is the source of the Ecker directly on the border between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt in the Harz National Park on the eastern edge of the Brockenfeld at about 850 m above sea level. NHN. The source is to the west of the 1033.5 m high summit of the Königsberg, a side knoll of the Brocken, and about one kilometer south-southeast of the Quitschenberg in Lower Saxony, which is 881.5 m high.
