On a hike on the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg you cross mystical beech and spruce forests and hike through the world cultural heritage "Oberharzhe water shelf". Ponds, streams and numerous ditches accompany you on your way towards Thale. You reach the Brocken through the high moor and can enjoy the unique view of the green surroundings high up.

 

Change for 2023:

Please note that due to business closure (in one case) and use as refugee accommodation (in the other case), our two hotel partners in the Stage location Rübeland cannot be booked in 2023.

Of course, we have appropriate alternatives ready. You can find these under day 5.

Explore the half-timbered town of Osterode Harz while strolling through the pedestrian zone.

Overnight place: Easterode

It initially goes uphill along old trade routes and you experience the first harbingers of the Oberharzhe water shelf before you reach the university town of Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Here you can marvel at the largest wooden church in Germany – the Marktkirche zum Heiligen Geist.

303 m ascent - 361 m descent

Overnight place: Altenau

Today the highlight of your hiking trip awaits you: the climb to the Brocken in the middle of the core area of ​​the cross-border national park Harz. You climb to the summit on well-developed and varied paths. The route takes you down to Schierke or Wernigerode Harzhe narrow-gauge railway (self-payer). Overnight stay in Schierke or Wernigerode.

658 m ascent - 38 m descent

If you spend the night in Wernigerode, first use the bus (excl.) to Schierke. On the Pfarrsteig you reach the hiking trail again.

414 m ascent - 641 m descent

Today's companion is the Bode. Sometimes on small paths, sometimes on wide paths and sometimes high above the Wendefurth dam, you follow the course of the river to Altenbrak or Treseburg.

390-485 m ascent - 458-639 m descent

Overnight place: Altenbrak/Treseburg

On the last day you hike through the mythical and legendary Bodetal. The narrow path always leads along the river between towering granite rocks.

You can get to Quedlinburg by bus (incl. in the spa card), train (excl.) or on foot (+ 16 km).
