The Heimat- und FIS-Skimuseum Braunlage provides answers to the question of how skiing came to the Harz Mountains.
Listen to exciting stories about Braunlage and find out how skiing came to the Harz Mountains! Our extensive collection on the history of Harz winter sports has even led to our museum being recognised as a FIS Ski Museum (FIS = "Fédération Internationale de Ski") by the International Ski Federation.
It is thanks to head forester Artur Ullrichs that Braunlage is now the leading winter sports resort in the Harz Mountains, that three modern ski jumps are available in summer and winter and that the WSV-Braunlage has been very active in Braunlage since 1892.
