Horizontal path with a few gradients around Bad Grund with views of the Bad Grundner valleys, past the world forest Harz, Hübichenstein, Iberger stalactite cave and the world cultural heritage mine Knesebeck.

A huge rock pin marks the main entrance to the "König-Hübich-Route": the Hübichenstein. The circular route many views into the five valleys of Bad Grund. It combines many cultural and natural sights such as museums or the water trail to the Knesebeck Mine (World Heritage Site Upper Harz Water Management) with its water gallery and the hydro compressor tower, which is visible from afar. Water treads with clear mountain water ensure cooling and blood circulation. Another highlight is the WeltWald Harz. As an arboretum, it offers a variety of trees from four continents, and it is particularly colorful in spring and autumn.
