The colourful town Wernigerode is located at the northern foothills of the Harz Mountains and is looking back on 1,000 years of history.
Due to tourists visiting its numerous art and cultural monuments, the city’s hotels are frequently fully booked.
Wernigerode’s famous centre is the Town Hall with its timber facade (1498) and the decorative wood-carvings. Another highlight is the Gothic house that has been turned into a hotel.
Wernigerode’s hotel guests will be impressed with the beautiful fountain Marktbrunnen and the city’s oldest hotel “Weißer Hirsch”.
If your hotel is located in Wernigerode’s oldest district Klint you may have a look at the Harzmuseum, where you will receive information about the history of the Harz Mountains.
Near your Wernigerode hotel you will have the possibility to go for a stroll on the city’s old alleys. In the street Kochstraße you will find Wernigerode’s smallest house, which is only 4 meter/13 feet high.
If you are staying at a hotel in Wernigerode’s street Breite Straße we recommend you to stop off at the “Café Wien”.
On Wernigerode’s hill Agnesberg the Wernigerode Castle towers above the city. You should have a tour around the castle during your stay at a hotel in Wernigerode.
The castle, which will inevitably remind you of fairy tales, houses a museum, which will inform you about the lifestyle of the aristocrats. From outside the castle you will have a tremendous view over your hotel in Wernigerode.
If you are looking for tranquillity and relaxation during your stay at a Wernigerode hotel we recommend you to go to the local animal park or the wild park Christianental.
Wernigerode is home to the Harzer Schmalspurbahn, a narrow gauge railway that leads from Wernigerode to The Brocken (1,141 m/3,744 ft), the highest peak in the Harz Mountains.
Wernigerode’s hotels play a vital role for the city’s economy.
