    Geographical and literary-historical highlight: The Teufelsstieg is an absolute must when hiking in the eastern Harz mountains in the footsteps of Goethe. Very beautiful landscape on the Kalten Bode with ascent to the snore cliffs. Very nice detailed information also from Gabriele.

    The Teufelsstieg leads from misery uphill through rustic nature always along the cold Bode along. In misery it is possible to walk through the Elendstal on two paths to a resting place. Left on forest floor, right on forest road.

    A charming path to walk through primeval nature. Sturdy shoes are recommended. The path leads from the snorer cliffs down to the Elendstal or vice versa.In the footsteps of Goethe:
    World famous are the figures Faust and Mephisto. Goethe sent you in his "Faust" from misery out on the chunks and it is exactly here he should arise - the Harz theme trail "Devil's rise".
    For decades, tourists like to wander through the area of ​​misery and Schierke.
    Trees, valleys, rocks and the cold Bode impress hikers, Nordic walkers or mountain bikers.
     This gave rise to the idea of ​​shaping the ascent as a theme path. In 2005, the first stage of Teufelsstieges from Bad Harzburg to Brocken.The second stage followed only 9 years later. The path did not have to be newly created, only prepared.
    He begins in misery on a more than 40 -meter-high and 200-year-old spruce - the "Talwächter" and leads over the snorer cliffs and Mauseklippen to Schierke and the Eckerloch to Brocken.

    The Teufelsstieg is a hiking trail on the right bank of the Kalten Bode from Elend to the snoring cliffs. Due to the magnetic peculiarities of the cliffs with the deviation of the compass needle from north, Goethe is said to have been inspired to his work "Faust I". Information boards provide further information along the way and on the southern snore cliff.

    Right at the beginning of the devil climb. Decide on the left path if you wear sturdy shoes
