health and winter resort of the Upper Harz
The small health resort Buntenbock is a district of the town of Clausthal-Zellerfeld and away from noisy streets and surrounded by flowering meadows, green forests and the clear mountain waters of the Upper Harz.
Hikers, nature lovers and sports enthusiasts will find pure relaxation in an idyllic setting. The location on the popular long distance path Harzer-Hexen-Stieg and the Harzer Foersterstieg, with the mountain-bike trails of the Volksbank Arena Harz, make it a popular holiday destination. Also the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Upper Harz Water Management System, with its numerous fishing and swimming opportunities, give Buntenbock more appeal. Smaller tours and excursions lead through the colourful mountain meadow Bocker.
A special event is to encounter the colourful herd of goats at the goat farm which welcomes visitors to the herb mountain meadows on the outskirts of Butenbock.
In winter, the small town welcomes its guests with various, partially illuminated cross-country trails, a cross-country skiing school, a youth ski jump and toboggan slope.
