Harz. 2. Brocken, Wurmberg

Harz is a wooded mountain massif, the highest in northern Germany. The origin of the name is connected with the Old German word meaning “wooded mountains”. Which is quite correct – the mountains are very wooded, covered mainly with firry forests. True, the forests have suffered greatly over the past five years. But foresters are hoping for self-recovery.

In this part about Brocken and the steam railway, as well as about the neighboring mountain Wurmberg.

Attractions near Dresden. Bastei rocks, Königstein Fortress

The attractions near Dresden are no less curious than the city itself (read more about Dresden): these are natural attractions – the so-called Saxon Switzerland begins here, and palaces, castles, and museums.

Harz. 4. Quedlinburg old town

Quedlinburg has escaped the destruction of great wars and devastating fires. Its 1200 half-timbered houses from different eras await your cameras and your admiration.

The city is considered by many to be the most romantic of the Harz cities.

We liked Wernigerode better, but only because that that year Quedlinburg was the most renovated of the Harz cities. Now, of course, you can see it in all its glory.

Harz Goslar What to see

According to legend, the knight Ramm, or rather, his restless horse, discovered silver ore on Rammelsberg. The horse was tied to a tree while hunting. Out of boredom, he dug up the ground with his hoof and exposed the ore, a sample of which the knight brought to the king. The wife of a knight named Gose Goslar owes its name. From this legend, the real were the kings. For quite a long time, Goslar was the imperial residence town.

Rammelsberg has been a source of wealth for the Goslar for centuries. Now both the former mine and the preserved half-timbered town are included in the UNESCO list.

Luneburg Heath. Schneverdingen

Before, I did not understand why tourists visit the Luneburg Heath in such an amazing amount. But now I know and I will always be glad to come back again.

Heath is something amazing. It would seem that it should be just depressing: swampy landscape, clusters of trees here and there. But instead, you have a sense of freedom. The smell of pines and heather, the buzzing of bees – you can walk endlessly.
