    Playground for everyone! The little ones can frolic, bolt or climb here. The adults can chill and enjoy the Baltic Sea atmosphere in the sand. Even four-legged friends have their pleasure here. Incidentally, there is still the stamp 81 of the Harzer hiking needle on the edge of the site.

    Large sandstone caves, which one does not suspect here. Small climbing - by the way ...

    The caves with the pure white fine sand are very impressive. They are located directly northeast below the Regenstein (castle made out of sandstone rocks) and can be reached from the local hiking car park in 10 minutes and from the stop Börnecke in about 30 minutes.

    On a 6km short circuit you can visit the caves with the mill wheels and the castle Regenstein.

    If you look at the castle and fortress Regenstein, then you should definitely visit the Heers Sandhölen as part of a short walk.
    Great and impressive scenery.
    The circuit around and on the Regenstein has about 6km.
    But beware..The way along the military reserve is only to be guessed and very steep. Bad to commit.

    A very nice hiking trail leads from the car park Burg Regenstein to the big sandstone caves. The sandstone caves are a geological feature and definitely worth a visit. Here you will find a stamp office of the Harzer hiking nobility. The stamp box can not be found right away.

    The caves are for children like an oversized adventure playground? As an adult, however, one feels a little like the Baltic Sea. The impressive white rock elevations, for example, remind of the chalk cliffs on Rügen.
    The caves are below the Dedingstein and are referred to in the Blankenburg vernacular as "Sandhutsche". In prehistoric times, the Teutons are said to have used this place as a meeting place.

    Definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, very crowded. Great experience for children. You can play in the sand or slide down the sand hills.

    Impressive scenery at the foot of the castle and fortress Regenstein.
    In just under 2.5 hours you can visit a visit to this and other caves in connection with the ascent to the castle within a 6km short hike.
    But beware! The path along the military reserve can only be guessed at and very steep.

    A spectacular spot! At the same time, it is very interesting what has been scribbled into the rock since time. 🧐🤨
