The Ziegenalm in Sophienhof is the destination and starting point for many hikes. Here children can get in touch with the cattle. You can also see wild. Sometimes the shaggy dogs stray across the grounds and pick up their pats from the children. For the grown-ups there is a farm shop with all conceivable products such as cheese, meat and sausage, goat ice cream, schnapps and skins.

In 1747 and 1748, Sophienhof was the seat of the count's forest and hunting master Hans Dietrich von Zanthier, who later founded the first German forest academy. A small memorial in the town center is dedicated to this outstanding personality and cannot be overlooked by the old linden tree.

On the southern edge of Sophienhof is a small reservoir. In it, the surface water of the environment collects. On its shore there are various seating options. From here you have a picturesque view of the settlement embedded in the gentle southern Harz mountain landscape. Between the trees you can see various fragmentary views of buildings. The whole picture exudes an atmosphere of peace and relaxation - and indeed the idyll is hardly ever clouded by a disturbing noise. There are probably only a few places in the Harz with a comparable remoteness and absence of any everyday noise.
