Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
The Ilsetal is located on the northern part of the Harz. From the National Park town of Ilsenburg on the Harzfuss up to the headwaters of the Ilse - near the summit of Brocken (1141.2 m above sea level) - extend various forests of the Harz. Heinrich Heine described the Ilsetal with its Ilse river and the Ilsestein towering above it in today's Harz National Park.When you approach the Harz on the northern edge, you notice its striking mountains. Between Goslar and Wernigerode its mountains are particularly impressive when steep peaks outgrow the flat valley. Between the mountains very deep gorge valleys in the Harz Mountains mark the landscape. In addition to the Ilse, the parallel valleys of the Oker, the Ecker and the Bode are to be mentioned here.From 1830 to 1838, at the expense of Count Henrich to Stolberg-Wernigerode, a road from Ilsenburg over Spiegelleust through the Ilsetal, below the Brocken over to Schierke was built, which at that time facilitated tourism in the higher mountainous terrain, now closed to public transport is.Via the Heinrich-Heine-Weg and Plessenburg you can climb the Brocken of Ilsenburg (250 m height) on a 15 km route.At or near the Ilsetal are these stamp points of the Harzer hiking nobility (downstream considered, with stamp numbers): Yellow Brink (22), Large Zeterklippe (10), Brockenhaus (9), Stamp book (8), Bremer hut / Upper Ilsefälle ( 6), Gasthaus Ilsestein (30) and Froschfelsen (5).
