Steep and rocky path from the Bode up to La Viershöhe.
Sturdy hiking shoes are a must and when it rains the stones can be really slippery.
The path is not too overcrowded (you will still meet people) and leads wonderfully through the relatively dense forest ...

The name of the height is reminiscent of the forester La Viers, who was in the 19th century the highest ranking forest officials of the Prussian province of Saxony for the area of the Harz forest areas. La Viers, possibly of Huguenot descent, was more likely to hunt in this area. He suggested, in view of the onset of resin tourism, very early and even before the establishment of the Harz Club, the establishment of hiking trails.

The La Viershöhe (478 m above sea level) is located above the Bodetals very close to the Hexentanzplatz.
From the La Viershöhe you have an outstanding view of the Bodetal and the towering behind it rocks. The best way to recognize the bizarre rock formations in early spring, if one of the green vegetation does not yet take the view. If one sees then still a few birds of prey foraging over the gorge circling, one understands why the Bodetal was put already in March 1937 under nature protection.
The name of the height is reminiscent of the forester La Viers, who was in the 19th century, the highest-ranking forest officials for the area of the Harz forest areas. La Viers, possibly comes from a Huguenot family. Since he was often hunting in the Bodetal, he recognized early on the beauty of this landscape and encouraged for the tourist trail to create.
The La Viershöhe can be reached from the Hexentanzplatz via a signposted path, which, in continuation of the hike, also leads to the Prinzensicht HWN 70.

The leap after pursued once the giant Bodo the beautiful princess Brunhilde, whom he wanted to marry against her will. Brunhilde escaped on a white steed, but suddenly a deep abyss opened in front of her. She made a bold leap to the otherworldly rock, losing her crown, sinking in the raging river. However, her pursuer plunged into the depths and was turned into a dog who has been guarding the princess's crown ever since. The impression of the horse's hoof is still visible today. The giant Bodo gave the river the name Bode.
