The best way to reach the summit is via the Butterstieg from Altenau. But also the other ways are really nice, since here no wood industry is operated. Highly recommended is also the flood-trench path with very beautiful views of Brocken, Achtermann and Wurmberg.

The Wolfswarte - the forestless summit of the Bruchberg in the Harz
The Bruchberg offers wonderful hiking trails for you - the special highlight is the Wolfswarte, which you can climb about 700 m northeast of the summit of the Bruchberg. Located in the core zone of the Harz National Park, Bruchberg is the second highest mountain in Lower Saxony with its 927 vertical meters. Near the summit, you will find the Wolfswarte, a forest-free dome made of weathered Acker-Bruchberg quartzite. In good weather you have a breathtaking view from the Wolfswarte and can see the highest mountain of the Harz, the Brocken.

The Wolfswarte is part of the detour after the closure of the Magdeburger Weg. The view is phenomenal, but the way there over d. Butterstieg is quite steep, and the way down to Torfhaus is not very comfortable either. Who has a long distance already behind him may consider whether he wants to do this 300m increase still.

The wolf waiting is a very rewarding view summit. Especially from the top stone block you have a great panoramic view of the mountains of the Harz. The path to the Wolfswarte requires surefootedness when climbing up from Torfhaus. This path is more difficult in snow and wet.
