Bad Harzburg is one of the top four health resorts within Germany. Relax in one of the most beautiful wellness therme in Lower Saxony.
Situated right next to the Baumwipfelpfad, the first tree top trail in Lower Saxony, and the House of Nature, the Burgberg cable car takes hikers and nature lovers in three minutes to the top of the Großen Burgberg (great castle hill at 483m). At the top discover the ruins of Harzburg castle along the historic trail. It is also the starting point of many hiking tours. A break in a rural restaurant almost hidden in the deep forest is almost compulsory. Bad Harzburg itself invites visitors with attractive shops in the pedestrian zone. Also find many activities in and around Bad Harzburg such as Nordic walking, mountain biking, horseback riding, golf, tennis and hiking.
