Hiking Highlight (Segment)
komoot planned a hike.
June 8, 2017
When it's the most beautiful, you should stop. But until that happens, the grand finale of the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg awaits you. Starting from Altenbrak, you go through the still wide Bodetal to Treseburg. There you enter the wildest part of the Bodetal, maybe even the Harz. Mystic places, the raging Bode and high above you the Hexentanzplatz and Rosstrappe. Here, legends become real. When leaving the valley, you can take the cable car to the Hexentanzplatz or the chairlift to Rosstrappe. At the end of the climb, the Peace Park is waiting for you. The actual gate of the witch's staircase is in the city center at Wotansbrunnen. Until then, the Mythenweg will accompany you in the form of Germanic sculptures.Strength does not demand this section very much. But technically the area from the sun cliff to the guest house Königsruhe is appealing. Stumbling lurking and sometimes it's slopes that require your attention. None of this is insurmountable.Altenbrak has several bus stops and can be reached from Thale and Blankenburg. At the end of the witches staircase in Thale you can find the Thalenser train station.
