    Bodetal is the valley of the Warm Bode and the Kalten Bode in the Harz. In the narrower sense, only the ten kilometer long, gorge-like section of the Bode valley between Treseburg and Thale is called Bodetal.
    Bode, which rises on the Brocken, the highest mountain in the Harz Mountains, has cut into the morphologically hard Ramberg granite. The gorge near Treseburg is about 140 meters deep and about 280 meters deep at the transition to the Harz foothills near Thale. The Bodetal was placed under nature protection on March 5, 1937 and later expanded. With currently 473.78 hectares, it is one of the largest nature reserves in Saxony-Anhalt. The Bodetal was included in the list of 77 excellent national geotopes in 2006. [1]

    Unfortunately, the path between Treseburg and Thale has been closed since October because of the slope protection at the Schurre - ascent to the Rosstrappe and the risk of falling rocks in the winter months. The Bodetal is expected to be accessible again from spring 2021. From Thale, the valley is only free up to the Königskrug and the ascent and descent to La Viershöhe. A diversion is signposted.

    The devil himself has not been seen at the bridge named after him for a long time. According to legend, this could only be built with the support of this prince of darkness. In return, the devil asked for the soul of the first person to cross the structure. Normally this was the master builder himself. But he saw through the horse-footed man's plan and devised a ruse. When he inaugurated the bridge, the master builder drove a goat in front of him. So the devil - once again - got nothing.

    The Teufesbrücke, built in 1863, bridges the torrential Bode at one of the narrowest points in the Bodetal. In the middle is an inscription depicting the head of the horse-footed man.
    The witches' bridge is not far either.
