    The Mönchsbuche is a natural monument near the Hasserode district of Wernigerode in the Harz. It is located on an old communication route between the monastery Himmelpforten and the monastery Ilsenburg.

    In March 2011, the treetop of the well over 100-year-old beech was removed to save the rest of the tree from being fined due to dying.

    The monk's beech is included as No. 26 in the system of the postmarks of the Harzer hiking aristocracy; at this point there is a refuge (528 m above sea level). Slightly below the beech is located on the way to the Steinerne Renne of the Wernigerode Bürgerbrunnen. 🤠 (Wiki.)

    The Mönchsbuche can be reached from the parking lot at the Steinerne Renne station via the Bielsteinchaussee and the Bürgerbrunnen (ca.2.6 km). You can continue the tour to the guest house Steinerne Renne HWN 28.

    The monk's beech was planted by monks as the name already said as a waymarking and used as a shade and rest stop.

    So the monk beech is really great. At first you think that there is no life in it anymore. But if you walk around, new shoots sprout from all corners of the huge trunk. Furthermore, you can take a nice break there and if you are very quiet, the beech maybe tells you something from old times :-)

    Unfortunately, the tree is slowly dying.

    The monk's beech is located above the Steinerne Renne, about 2 km from the same inn.

    Stamp location is ideal for a short break. Refuge and seating are still fairly new.
