Bike Touring Highlight
The driveway or downhill over the concrete slabs is uncomfortable. The part of the Goetheweg, which runs parallel to the Brockenbahn, is easy to drive. The paved supply road from Schierke to Brocken, on which the Goetheweg flows, is quite steep in the last part. With the e-bike that's no problem, otherwise you need a good condition. The area is just great.

I was 14 times up. Just behind Brocken Benno 🤔😊😂 Always great. Several times with the MTB and often on foot. On the first climb there were still border controls and on the Brocken, even Russians with Kalashnikov. From Schierke 1.10 hours up and 18 minutes down again. At that time hardly hikers. I'm even younger. Climb the hill, it's worth it. But the weather should play. Especially the clothes. The Brocken is always good for a surprise, as far as the weather is concerned.

Sure, the highest point in Germany, but not the most beautiful point. The forest dieback and the guilt of forest management is obvious. At the same time, the paths are very often very crowded. Hence the highlight, well, you have to decide for yourself. The ascent from this direction is in any case easy to master on a racing bike, good asphalt, good incline, but be careful when descending.
