Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Just climb the chunk and enjoy the view, that was not for a long time. When Germany was still divided into two parts, the Brocken was a restricted zone and was used as a strategic point to spy on the West. At that time military vehicles rattled this way up and down armor plates. Today you can empathize with the bike. These panels are typical of remote military and economic routes in rural areas of eastern Germany. Just let it run, then it shakes only half as strong;)

Pretty demanding, fast route. The holey stone slabs can make you quite tender. The first sunken concrete gutter surprised me a lot. Hello awake! I drive a 26 "hardtail, that does not sweep over everything, but we still had speeds well over 50 km / h on the speedometer, with a bit of caution a very worthwhile track, but I do not want to drive up ;-)

The northern descent from the Brocken is in my opinion much steeper compared to the southern driveway. In addition, the track used to be a tank track with transverse concrete slabs, which do not form a level track. Because of this you can not run the bike here but must drive controlled.

The descent on the north side of Brocken is much steeper than the other side. This path follows the old border road for tanks that was used to patrol the inner German border. In contrast to summer, winter this is a really smooth ride down. This segment is better ridden downhill.
