    The mountain is easy to reach from Elbingerode and the view from the top is fantastically beautiful. :-)

    With its exposed location offers a very beautiful panorama, even the old Goethe has enjoyed.

    Without a protection status, this cliff would also have been dismantled.

    However, the quarry is getting closer to beautiful mountain meadows.

    The Galgenberg is the highest point of the limestone cliffs located there and was formerly the place of execution for the city of Elbingerode. Today the stamp point 38 of the Harz hiking pin. You have a good view of the large limestone quarry to the south.
