    After a restful night, you start one of the longer stages of the Harz monastery hike. But today's stage also has a lot to offer in terms of variety. After you have left the Wöltingerode monastery behind you, you first follow the ridge of the Harly. The red sandstone that supplied the building material for the monastery complex was broken here and this is the reason why the monastery is so well preserved to this day. Passing the outskirts of Vienenburg and along the Oker you finally reach Wiedelah.There the monastery hiking trail turns south again and now follows the Green Belt and thus the former inner-German border. Signs here remind of the division of Germany and Europe. Over extensive fields and with a view of the Harz you hike to Abbenrode. From here, a particularly beautiful section awaits you along the Ecker, which meanders comfortably through a nature reserve. Through the dense forest and over narrow trails you finally get to the former spa facility Jungborn. There is a special postmark for the Harz hiking pin and a cozy refuge offers you shelter for a break in bad weather. A little off the hiking trail is the Waldcafé am Jungborn, which is a good place to stop for refreshments.Reinvigorated, you then set off for the last few kilometers to your destination. Over a small wooded ridge and past the trumpet head you finally reach Ilsenburg. Through the spa park you get to the trout pond and thus to the city center of the old small town. From there the path leads you uphill again to the Ilsenburg Monastery. The former Benedictine abbey is more than 1000 years old in parts and has been extensively restored in recent decades. The adjacent castle park is also worth a visit. You can rent a simple guest room in the monastery. Alternatively, you can also find some accommodations and various restaurants in town.
