Harz Border Trail, Bad Harzburg
Mount Brocken, the highest mountain in the Harz Mountains with 3,747 feet, was virtually inaccessible in the middle of the restricted zone for people from both sides. In over 40 years, a natural treasure has developed along the former borderline. Guests can discover this untouched landscape along the Harz Border Trail during a 46 mile hike along the so-called "Grüne Band" (green belt), a chain of biosphere reserves along the former border between East and West Germany. From Ilsenburg, the trail follows along the former borderline through Sorge, Hohegeiß and Benneckenstein to Walkenried.
