Best Hiking Routes to Bremer Weg / Heinrich-Heine-Weg
  • Of all the trails that lead to the highest peak of the Harz, the Heinrich-Heine-Weg is in my opinion the most beautiful. The famous poet chose this route in 1824. The scenic route leads on winding forest paths through the Ilsetal to the Ilsefälle and further up to the Brocken. The ascent to the Brockenkuppe is quite worthwhile, because the view is, in good visibility, simply spectacular.

  • A wonderful tour on wild grown paths and flat trails always along the water.

    From Brocken you can reach the Ilse via an adventurous and rugged ravine.

    From here, it snakes its way through its wild and romantic valley with several waterfalls.

    Stone islands invite you to a picnic in the middle of the crystal-clear stream.

    Beautiful but shy brown trout frolic in the clear pools on the way to Ilsenburg.

    At the end of the forest path just before the high ropes course you can make excellent stops.

    Start of the tour from Brocken / Bad Harzburg / Torfhaus and opposite of Ilsenburg uphill possible.

  • 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 the 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. (Wiki.)
