    Today's stage is not particularly long, but it gives you enough time for the many historical sights along the way. After a last look over Ilsenburg, you leave the place through the romantic castle park, which has been one of the "garden dreams of Saxony-Anhalt" since 2019. Under the canopy of old beech trees, your path will soon lead you to Drübeck Abbey.You should plan some time for the monastery, because there is really a lot to see here. You can visit the Romanesque monastery church of St. Vitus, take a guided tour, stroll through the baroque gardens or take a break in the monastery café. The Harzer hiking pin stamp is also located here. Overnight stays are also possible in the monastery.In a gentle up and down, you now hike through the forest on the edge of the Harz. From the former hermit monastery at Himmelpforte on the roadside, only the remains of the wall can be seen today. The Lutherstein, which commemorates Martin Luther's visit to the monastery in 1516, is very close by.Finally, along the tracks of the Harz narrow-gauge railways, you will reach Wernigerode. Through the historic western gate you enter the colorful city on the Harz, which offers some sights. The historic city center consists largely of half-timbered houses. Particularly worth seeing are the market square and the adjoining old town hall, as well as of course the Wernigerode Castle, which is built on the hill above the town and can be seen from afar. In Wernigerode you will find a whole range of accommodation and refreshment stops.
