    Beautiful place (with stamp box), which shows how beautiful the Harz forest streams can be. Rocks for climbing and rushing cold water, benches for picnicking.

    Small sleepy island, lapped by the Oker, invites you to picnic and relax with the acoustics of the rushing water.

    A beautiful place in the middle of the river. Here the water rushes noisily past left and right.

    The engagement island with the stamp post no. 116 of the "Harzer Wanderadel" and part of the thematic needle "Goethe in the Harz" is probably one of the most beautiful resting places, it lies in the middle of the river course of the Oker, which is rather to be regarded as a mountain stream. A small, curved wooden bridge leads to the island of engagement, located between mighty granite blocks. The stones are remnants and testimony of the last ice age, which also formed the Okertal.

    In the midst of the rushing Oker you can close your eyes on big rocks and take a short break.

    Impressive, with what force these rocks were carried away by the water.

    And J. W. Goethe should already have been there. Great, together with him in Okertal.

    The way there is sometimes very rocky and uneven. Not harmless!

    Lauschiges cookies, because of the proximity to the street not really a romantic place, but stamp point of the hiking nobility.

    Yes, there is also an island in the Harz Mountains! If only a very small river island in the upper reaches of the Oker.

    A beautiful, stony path leads along the Oker to the island. Here you can rest, there is also a stamp of the Harzer hiking nobility!

    The only annoying thing is the noise from the nearby road.
