Thinking of going to this area later on this year, anybody been and could recommend the area ?
Yes we went in August. Truly spectacular place....well worth a visit, some of the buildings are out of his world and so pretty.
Goslar was one of the places we went...that's real neat
Quidkingburg was something else...
You could also drive a little further out to Colditz, that was well wow!!!
We got most of our information from here..
After 20 odd years of exploring Franceits Germany all the way for the next few years :thumb:
Stunning Scenery great area
Der Harz – The Harz-Mountains | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Our first ever camping trip was in 1978 - a weekend in the Harz mountains. It was the end of May - bank holiday weekend. We were living not too many miles away in Soest.
So off we went to the Harz with our frame tent we'd just bought off some friends - took everything except the kitchen sink! It was freezing up there in the mountains - Rex was OK - he was a roughy toughy soldier but me and the kids weren't impressed!
Didn't stop us camping though :Wink:
Can't remember the name of the site we stayed at - we actually found it again in 2002 - just by chance - going to try and find it again this year!
We went to look at the East German border in 1978 - very sobering - and when we went back in 2002 we even managed to find the village we'd been to that day!
Lovely part of the world and I am sure you will have a great holiday.
We toured the area on a motorbike and had a wonderful time.:thumb:
Stellplatze at Wernigerode is very close to the rail station (narrow-gauge steam) to get a train to the top of the Brocken mountain. Takes about one hour but the views are worth it, although it can get quite windy.
Our visit was a little before that when we were stationed in Paderborn but well worth the visit

Is Colditz still visitable then. I went there about 10 years ago and they had just started converting the castle into a hotel/conference centre. It was good to see the tunnels etc, but can you still do that?
Have just been informed you can (2012).
There is a museum as well as a tour, either self guided or with an English speaking guide.
