Tips

  • Manuela

    A ride on the Brockenbahn is a special experience. If you hike up the Brocken, you can hear her panting when she drives up or down the path.

    Nice, worthwhile photo point to take pictures of the famous Brocken Railway. The train passes here regularly on its journey to the summit. It is always a highlight when the historic steam locomotive drives past you. But before you even see the locomotive you can hear it. The loud whistling can be heard for miles.
    A ride on the Brocken Railway is not only a beautiful and fascinating experience for children and a must for every holidaymaker in the Harz Mountains.

    You don't have to wait here until the barriers go down, because there are none!

    Very good view of the Brockenbahn, but on days with good weather there are a lot of people and you should consider going to another place such as the Bahnparallelweg

    A must if you have ever visited the Brocken. Either drive up or down or walk along the parallel path to take nice pictures of the train. 😀

    Unfortunately, I didn't see the Brocken Railway on my ascent and descent; but it could always be heard.

    Super photo motif. Follow the railway line that leads directly to the summit.

    The Brockenbahn is an absolute eye-catcher! If you are not afraid of the fare (€ 33 / one way), you can be on the Brocken without any effort.

    Impressive when the steam horse stomps past you!
    The kids love that. Well, not just them.

    It is nice to see when the Brockenbahn is sniffing and puffing past you.

    Highest mountain in the Harz Mountains, so always worth a trip, even if the beautiful view is rather rare ;-)

    It is loud, it makes dirt and yet it is great to look at in summer as well as in winter and it belongs to the boulder. A trip is also recommended. 👍
