Best Hikes to Schnarcherklippe (HWN 14)
  • Fabian

    A real highlight in the region: the snoring cliffs, which even Goethe occupied with in Faust I and Faust II ("[...] and the cliffs that bend down, and the long rocky outcrops, how they snore, how they blow!"). Located between the Barenberg and the Mouse Cliffs, you can reach the Snore Cliffs relatively quickly after starting in Misery. While the climb can seem a little daunting, it's really worth the climb. From the top of the cliffs - you are about 700 meters above sea level - the view towards Elend, Schierke, Wurmberg and Bodetal is truly breathtaking. Since the ascent is via stairs and metal steps, surefootedness and a head for heights are absolutely necessary.

  • Always a bit crowded, because easy to reach from Schierke. The cliffs themselves can be climbed. Be it as a mountaineer or as a "normal person" on stairs.

  • It is worth going up the cliffs and there is also a stamp for the Harzerwandernadel

  • A very impressive cliff, the climb is rewarded with a magnificent view.
    It can be built into a hiking tour around Schierke and Elend.

  • There are two great - and high - cliffs to admire. One of them can be climbed via a metal staircase and offers a great view!

  • ... the point is where the rock changes the magnetic needle ... (WA II 9.236).
    This is probably due to deposits of magnetic iron ore in the granite. But lightning strikes should also be responsible for that. Interesting anyway ...

  • Impressive geological and literary-historical highlight. Due to deviations of the magnetic needle from north, Goethe is said to have been motivated by Faust.

  • Those who tackle the relatively steep climb (very slippery in wet weather!) Will be rewarded with a beautiful view. The cliffs are also worth seeing from below.

  • Nice surprise in the middle of the forest. It is always amazing what Goethe has been doing on his travels.

  • Imposing rock formation with a great viewpoint.
    And stamp location 😎

  • Like rock tiles stacked on top of each other, this high rock makes every climber's heart beat faster. A worthwhile destination and location of a stamp box of the HWN

  • What old Goethe thought was good must also be found remarkable, great and imposing

  • These cliffs are incredibly impressive! A hike to these rocks is a must in the Harz Mountains!

  • w've spend our holidays in the Harz with offcourse the Schnarcherklippen.
    There were many children playing and trying to climb the rocks.
    Unfortunately we did not hear the sound of snoring.
    But it's an amazing spot to visit.

  • One of the two snorer cliffs is accessible via ladders. From the top there is a magnificent view over the treetops.

  • You walk through the forest and suddenly these two huge rocks appear in front of you! The hammer! When we also saw that you can climb up there, the tour was already a success! Class! Don't forget the Harzer hiking pin stamp!
