Tips

  • Rob Ert

    Germany's only narrow-gauge railway, which has its terminus on a summit with alpine climate. For 41 euros she brings lazy and railway romantics up and down again. A track is available for 26 euros.

    With a leisurely 40 km / h, the steam locomotive pulls the historic cars up the way to the "highest station in Northern Germany" located at 1125 meters.
    For the last section starting at Drei Annen Hohne (542 meters in height), the actual Brockenbahn, the locomotive needs just under an hour on the nearly 20 kilometer-long winding route.

    Seeing the Brockenbahn on the way up is one thing - riding along is a completely different experience.

    HSB is always an eye-catcher,
    no matter where you see them.

    The circular route on the summit lets you experience the gigantic view more intensively in every direction.

    The HSB (Harzer Schmalspurbahnen) have parked a (red-colored) tank wagon with extinguishing water on the Brocken for possible accidents. The wagon stands on a trolley.
    This tank wagon was only in Drei Annen Hohne and was subsequently painted by the HSB.
    It only serves as an extinguishing agent reserve and is shut down again in winter.

    Also in winter a very nice destination. In the sun a thousand times more beautiful and wonderful view. Get dressed warmly, there is always an icy wind on the way

    There are only a few days a year, where you have a clear view from the Brocken. I had one of these :)

    Especially in winter, the Big Boss of the resin is a unique experience!

    The Brockenbahn is a predominantly tourist used, meterspurige railway line of the Harz narrow gauge railways (HSB). It leads from Drei Annen Hohne on the Harzquerbahn over Schierke on the Brocken.

    Most of the time the year prevails on the Brocken fog / poor visibility, but if you catch a good and clear day, then you can see quite well up to 100 km. Obligatory is the pea soup with buck sausage.
