best season

A scenic and worthwhile circular hike to the viewpoints on the Rappbode Dam and on the Rotestein near Hasselfelde, the suspension bridge and the events of Harzdrenalin as well as the Harzköhlerei Stemberghaus.

The starting point is the car park directly at the Harzköhlerei Stemberghaus. From there it goes to the popular viewpoint Rotestein. From here you have a fantastic view of the Rappbode dam and the Brocken mountain panorama. A picnic seating area invites you to rest and linger. The route continues to the Rappbode dam, the highest dam in Germany (106 m) with a view of the imposing suspension bridge with the Gigaswing (pendulum), the Solitaire viewing tower and the largest double rope slide in Europe, the Megazipline, as well as the dams. If you dare, you can choose the way back over the suspension bridge - parallel to the dam wall - before you hike back to the Harzköhlerei via part of the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg.
