Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    The grandfather rock is part of the devil's wall. It takes some strength to climb it. But the effort is rewarded. From above you have a magnificent view of Blankenburg. A few meters further you will find the Grandmother Rock and the Löbbecke Rock. The area is a climbing paradise for children!

    Climbing announced!

    The grandfather rock (317 m above sea level) can be climbed / climbed, but requires surefootedness. Once at the top you have a wonderful view over Blankenburg.

    If you don't want to or can't go that high, you can stop off at the Großvater restaurant below the hiking trail.

    Attention stamp hunters:
    The stamp box 76 for the Harz hiking pin is located directly on the hiking trail, between the Grandfather Restaurant (below) and the Grandfather Rock (above). Via the Löbbeckestieg you can go directly to the Haburg coat of arms HWN 74.

    The stamp 76 of the Harz hiking pin is located below the grandfather rock and above the grandfather restaurant. From here you can hike directly to the Hamburg coat of arms.

    Sturdy shoes are essential! Squirrels can actually be fed from above in the forks of branches!
    The hike is a great (climbing) experience, especially for children!

    Especially the Kammweg is nice but also difficult to go.

    The good 6.5 km short tour is perfect to go with children. Grandfather Rock has a wonderful all-round view. On this Höhenkam you go comfortably on stick and stone the good 2.7 km to the Hamburg coat of arms. Halfway along the northern path you come to an artificially created Fuchsbau along, in which one can dive and explore wonderfully. Ideal for children! Arrived at the Hamburg coat of arms, the little ones can now really let off steam and explore the beautiful area, before you can then walk on the now southern path back to the Grandfather Gelsen.

    A great experience to wander over the Teufelsmauer.

    Small nice climbing deposit with great views of Blankenburg and part of the Teufelsmauer.

    Amusing summit trail over a section of the Teufelsmauer with great vantage points. Non-sure hikers I recommend to choose the path at the foot of the Teufelsmauer.

    Panoramic point with great views of Blankenburg.

    I was a little scared, because I'm not afraid of heights. But there were handles, rough "steps" and a lot of fun.

    ? The Teufelsmauer is further east !!, Teufelsmauer or Hamburger Wappen. This place is a viewpoint (Brockenblick) on the Teufels Kamm Stieg.
    However, it is true that the Teufelsmauer is a rock band that extends from Blankenburg to Ballenstedt.

    Quaint, natural ascent to grandfather. One should be good and safe on foot.

    From here you have a great view over Blankenburg. In wet weather, the climb is not recommended because the rock can be slippery then I'm too dangerous otherwise great!
