As a passionate Harz hiker you have to climb the highest mountain in Lower Saxony. However, the mountain is very much used for tourism, so it may not be the best place for nature lovers. In winter there is skiing here, in summer there is a large bike park in operation. I therefore recommend visiting the Wurmberg either very early in the morning or in the off-season when the lifts are down. The ascent via the Grenzweg from the east is very nice and calm, especially in winter.

The Wurmberg is the Brocken's little brother. So they stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder. When the weather is clear you have a fantastic all-round view from the Wurmberg. There are ski slopes here in winter. If you want to do something for your calves and thighs, use the stairs at the ski jump;)

The Wurmberg is designed for tourism. There is an alpine pasture, a Baude, relaxation areas, playgrounds, you can drive Mosterroller and mountain biking. If you want to enjoy the Wurmberg, you should not do so in the peak times of the weekend or on holidays

Extremely rewarding view summit. Great view to Brocken. In addition to hiking trails, a cable car, a street and a metal staircase lead to the summit next to the old ski jump. Upstairs there are 2 restaurants and 2 playgrounds as well as a small artificial lake.
