Various hikes such as the nature myth trail, the long-distance hiking trail 'Harzer-Hexen-Stieg' and the mountain bike trail network of the 'Volksbank Arena Harz' offer hiking enthusiasts and mountain bikers an interesting and eventful way to discover the Harz mountains. A popular destination is the Wurmberg in Braunlage. With the Wurmberg cable car, the mountain adventure playground on the summit, the monster scooter rental and the seven, largely natural routes of the Bikepark Braunlage, you will find a wide range of leisure activities here. On the observation tower on the summit, newly built in 2019, you can let your gaze wander over the Harz mountains.
In the winter, at an altitude of 971 metres above sea level, the Wurmberg offers the highest and largest Ski Area of the Harz Mountains.
