Tanne

District of Upper Harz and Brocken

The small and peaceful village of Tanne is nestled romantically in a pine coniferous forest in the beautiful Bode Valley at an elevation of 500 metres above sea level.

The typical landscape of the Harz Mountains, the proximity to Mount Brocken and the Harz National Park make this little town a popular holiday destination for hikers, nature lovers, families, athletes and leisure guests.

Extensive walking and cycling networks, as well as the 7.5km, circular trail with information boards, will help you to explore the beautiful nature in an exciting way. The village church with a pulpit, altarpiece and a shrine dating from the 16th century, a fallow deer enclosure and Kapitelsberg hill (528 metres) are popular walking destinations. The local history museum informs visitors about the history, customs and traditions of the village of Tanne with numerous antiques.

A special highlight and traditional high point of the year is the "Tanner Kuhball" (Tanne Cow Ball) with a parade, which focuses on the 'Harzer Rotes Höhenvieh', a unicoloured red cattle breed only found in the Harz Mountains.

In winter, the snow-covered village can be explored beautifully on skis or on a romantic winter hike. Find more information here: wintersport.harzinfo.de.
