the heart of the Harz
The health and winter sports resort Braunlage, at an altitude of 600-971 meters above sea level, is located in the Upper Harz. It combines every facet of the beautiful nature of the Harz National Park and ranks among one of the oldest ski areas of Germany.
Various National Park trails, such as the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg and the mountain- bike trails of the Volksbank Arena Harz, offer hikers and mountain-bikers an opportunity to discover interesting and exciting aspects of the Harz. Many of the popular destinations can be found on and around Mount Wurmberg. You can reach the summit by taking the Wurmberg cable car, where you then have a selection of ways down. You can take a Monster Scooter, or ride your own bike down one of the several, largely unspoiled stretches of the Braunlage Bike Park, take a leisurely walk back down or return via the cable car.
In the winter, at an altitude of 971 meters above sea level, the Wurmberg offers the highest and largest Ski Area of the Harz. Skiers and snowboarders will find modern ski lifts and ski runs from easy to difficult. Two ski meadows with lifts and an excellent ski school provide the perfect opportunity to learn skiing on easy slopes.
For the cross-country skier, there are many trails with different lengths, some of which are partially illuminated. Various sledging runs and the Wurmberg toboggan ensure fun for young and old, while walkers can enjoy the beautiful winter landscape on cleared paths for snowshoe hikes or by a romantic horse-drawn carriage. The Eisstadion (ice rink) offers visitors the opportunity to do ice-skating, curling and ice discos.
With Swing-Golf in the park and an indoor leisure pool, family fun is guaranteed.
