  • Harz

    Harz

    The Harz is the highest mountain range in northern Germany and its rugged terrain extends across parts of Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. The name Harz derives from the Middle High German word Hardt or Hart (mountain forest), Latinized as Hercynia. The legendary Brocken is the highest summit in the Harz with a height of 1,141.1 metres (3,744 ft) above sea level. The Wurmberg (971 metres (3,186 ft)) is the highest peak located entirely within Lower Saxony.

  • Ravensberg (Harz)

    Ravensberg (Harz)

    The Ravensberg is a 659 m high mountain in the South Harz mountains in the German state of Lower Saxony. It is relatively isolated and visible for a long way. It lies in the district of Osterode am Harz, north of Bad Sachsa.

    The mountain top is crowned with a prominent 64 m high tower, which was built in 1970. This tower acted as a listening post during the Cold War; today it is used by Deutsche Telekom.

    The Ravensberg is a wonderful viewing point, and is also very easy to get to by car, a road about 3.5 km long, running up to the summit from Bad Sachsa. There is an old boundary stone, the Dreiherrenstein, on this road shortly before the summit. Until 1866 this was where the borders of the Kingdom of Prussia, Kingdom of Hanover and Duchy of Brunswick met. Today the Dreiherrenstein is the starting point for several walks, mountain bike routes and the South Harz cross-country skiing trail, that runs, for example, to the Stöberhai mountain and town of Braunlage. On the summit is a restaurant catering for day-trippers. There is also a skiing area with several downhill runs and 3 lifts.

    Bocksberg (Harz)

    The Bocksberg is the local mountain for the village of Hahnenklee in the borough of Goslar in the German state of Lower Saxony. It lies southeast of this spa village in the Harz mountains and is 726 m above sea level.

    It was from here that a 1,350 metre long bobsleigh and racing toboggan run was laid in 1928, which had to be closed for technical and financial reasons in 1970. Although this mountain lay in the British Zone after the Second World War, the US Army operated a relay station here for their radio traffic between Frankfurt and Berlin. Its red and white transmission mast is used today for mobile telephone communications. It projects above the surrounding trees and is visible from a long way off.

    On the summit of the Bocksberg there is a restaurant and a wooden observation tower that was built in 1976.
