The largest conservation area in Germany which crosses multiple state borders offers nature lovers and hikers pure enjoyment of nature.

Situated in the heart of Germany, the Harz National Park—which crosses multiple state borders—protects and cultivates a unique low mountain landscape consisting of forests, moors and running waters. Numerous rare plant and animal species are to be found here.

The Harz National Park particularly captivates through the diversity of its natural environment. At the northern and southern edges, you can find extended beech forests, which tempt visitors out on a hike in spring and autumn in particular. In the higher altitudes of the Harz, dominated by the summit of the Brocken, the landscape is defined by moors, spruce forests and rocks. The moors in the Upper Harz are considered among the most impressive and most intact in Germany. Plank bridges offer our visitors an insight into the extreme habitat of the upland moor, with its highly-specialised plants such as peat moss and sundew.

In the higher-altitude spruce forests, the forest floor is often carpeted with a thick, knee-high layer of lush green. Thick cushions of moss and bizarre lichen crusts grow here as a result of the high air humidity, covering the trees on either side of the path. On the other hand, the rock formations and large blocks of stone which are strewn about the landscape—seas of stone—make an impressive sight due to their bareness. Water played and continues to play a decisive role all throughout the Harz. In earlier times, it was used on a large scale for mining. Today, it is increasingly being used for the good of nature. It flows down to the valley in semi-natural streams and offers a habitat for many animals, e.g. black storks or dippers.

The Harz National Park has something to offer in all seasons and weather. In summer, the restaurants located within the national park invite those out on a hiking tour to stay and linger a while. However, the landscape also has its charm in foggy weather in autumn—maybe you feel like taking part in a guided hike with a ranger? In the rustic mountain spruce forests of the Upper Harz and High Harz, you experience the feeling of having stepped into another world.

The rich nature of the national park, the deep valleys and ravines, as well as the stimulating climate typical to the Harz form a fantastic foundation on which to enjoy a restful and exciting holiday—come and visit!
