Forests and meadows cloaked in a snowy white mantle, frozen ponds and invigorating, clean air – this is winter in the Harz. The countryside around the town displays its numerous charms especially at this time of the year.
The choice is yours – skiing, tobogganing, ice-skating or walking. Yes, walking too. A number of cleared and – if necessary – gritted trails offer the perfect opportunity. You can recharge your batteries in the certain knowledge that you have chosen a particularly healthy type of holiday.
Winter in the Harz is the high season of sporting fun: cross-country skiing, downhill and snowboarding, tobogganing, ice-skating and curling.
Romantic winter and guided torchlit walks wind their way through peaceful winter forests. As the day draws to a close and the sinking sun envelops the magical winter landscape in romantic dusky tones, guests and locals meet in the restaurants for convivial chats, look back on the events of the day and look forward to tomorrow.
