Holiday anticipation

Nature, variety and relaxation

Enjoy a ride on the Wurmberg cable car

A ride on the longest cable car in Northern Germany is a special experience. Over a distance of more than 2,800 meters, you float from Braunlage, within 12 minutes to the Wurmberg summit. You can get off and on again at the middle station. Transporting wheelchairs and strollers is possible in summer and winter. Entry is no problem even with walking difficulties. Dogs are also welcome guests on the Wurmberg cable car.

Forests in a Changing Climate

Construction site nature!

Why do dead trees not herald the end of the forest, but the beginning of the new forest wilderness?! Extensive forests in transition to wilderness, valuable habitats for rare animals and plants - nature is allowed to go its own way in the Harz National Park. Gray wooden frames of dead old spruce trees dominate the landscape and are shocking to numerous locals and guests. Many worry about the forest and ask questions about its condition.
