Follow your heart and experience over seven kilometres the jewel in the crown of the extensive network of walks and trails around the delightful town of Hahnenklee. An individual circular trail awaits you with welcoming benches and spots where you can take a “breather”, surrounded by new and varied experiences for the whole family. You will delight in the picturesque Upper Harz reservoirs and in the colourful flowering mountain meadows, and old, traditional woodside restaurants will tempt you to pause and enjoy our local specialities.
Where the cockerel once found the silver of the town among wild growing clover which gave it its name, the trail takes us on to Hahnenklee’s very own mountain. Starting at Gustav Adolf Stave Church with its picturesque outlook over the town, you cross the former bobsleigh and toboggan run, the Crow’s Nest downhill ski run and pass under the route of the cable car (which brings you directly to the summit of Bocksberg Mountain). The trail continues its gentle ascent up Bocksberg Mountain until you reach one of three refreshment points along the way, Bocksberg Mountain Cabin. The route goes on past Auerhahn with adjoining restaurant and the ponds of the Oberharzer Wasserregal historic water power system where at Grumbacher Pond you have a further opportunity to recharge your batteries, Café Egerland.
The 7 km long circular trail brings you back to where you started, Bocksberg car park at the Stave Church, where you can round off your ramble with a leisurely stroll through Hahnenklee-Bockswiese.
By the way: The Liebesbank Trail was the first trail in the Harz and in the whole of Lower Saxony to be awarded the “premium trail” quality rambling seal from the German Hiking Institute!
