Mountain Idylls and one of the oldest areas for winter sports in Germany awaits you in Braunlage, in the heart of the delightful Harz landscape. The mythical low-mountain range offers you romantic hiking trails, mountain bike tours and cultural delights for individualists.
You can reach the Harz town of Braunlage from Munich via the A 9, from the direction of Dortmund via the A 44 and via the A 7 from Hamburg/Hannover. It is then the A-Road 4 that leads to Braunlage. If you are travelling with the German Railways, you can travel to Bad Harzburg and from there you can travel further with the bus line 820. From Braunlage there are bus connections to Hohegeiß, Bad Sascha, Bad Lauterberg, Herzberg, Sankt Andreasberg and Nordhausen.
During the summer, tourists are attracted by the nature discovery trails and hiking routes in the national Park, in the green woods, valley and mountains of the Harz region.
There are seven natural routes in the Bikepark for sports enthusiasts.
In winter the Wurmberg promises rapid ski slopes at a height of 971 Meters. For novice skiers, you can try your hand at the ski slopes at Hasselkopf or at the town hall.
The Heimat- und FIS-Skimuseum is always worth a visit and the mountain village of Hohegeiß has a local museum in a half-timbered building which is characteristic of the Harz, which provides you with an insight into the history of the region.
You can enjoy chamber music in the Schlosspark Ballenstedt which is on the outskirts of Braunlage. If you are more inclined towards a romantic nature adventure, you will find moonlight guided tours in the baroque Schlosspark Blankenburg. In Braunlage, food is intertwined with the music: in the Singenden Wirt Frank Faber will entertain you with folk and country music.
The gourmet restaurant Zur Tanne offers you a world of sensuous experience in a historical-romantic atmosphere. Here, you are presented with regional specialties in combination with a light Mediterranean cuisine and an exquisite wine selection.
