The small village of Trautenstein is a district of 'Stadt Oberharz am Brocken' and is surrounded by green mountain slopes in the idyllic valley of the Rappbode river at the southern tip of the Rappbode Dam.
Almost untouched nature, green meadows, crystal clear streams, moors and high mountains invite visitors to explore the Harz Mountains on various hikes, by mountain bike and bicycle, on one of the Nordic walking trails or along the 8 km long circular trail around Trautenstein.
In addition to its direct location to the Rappbode Dam, which belongs to the Bode and Rappbode dam system and is the largest dam in Germany, Trautenstein has other interesting sights to offer.
At 626 m above sea level, the Carlshaus tower offers a magnificent view over the Harz Mountains. The wooden church in the village impresses with its baroque half-timbered facade and the barrel ceiling inside painted with clouds and stars. In Trautenstein's local history museum, guests are given an insight into the past of the village and the Harz Mountains.
On hot summer days, the natural lido in the Dammbach valley promises cooling and recreational fun for young and old alike. Find out what Trautenstein has to offer in winter here: wintersport.harzinfo.de.
