Mining Town Sankt Andreasberg
UNESCO World Heritage, Mining Town, Adventure Land
Enjoy nature and discover history – The highest mountain town in the Harz is known for its mining tradition, their colourful mountain meadows and relaxing holidays in the middle of the mountains.
An incomparable speciality is the mining history which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Harz Water Management. The world’s most important pre-industrial water management system in mining is brought to life and can be experienced here both underground and above ground. Families can also discover nature together with the rangers of the Harz National Park or treat themselves to a full load of adrenaline in the paintball facility, the high ropes course or at the laser tag.
Fun is guaranteed all year round by the fast rides on the summer toboggan run or in winter on the snow tubing facility. Nature, culture and science can be experienced in the highest observatory in northern Germany. What is special about this location is that it gets very dark at night, so that the Milky Way or even the Andromeda Galaxy can be seen with the naked eye on many days of the year.
Active holidaymakers can find challenges in Sankt Andreasberg at any time of the year: With well-signposted hiking trails, it offers some steep climbs, tricky trails and the bike park for mountain bikers in summer. In winter, there are many easy and sporty cross-country trails and slopes on the Matthias-Schmidt-Berg and nearby Sonnenberg are at your disposal.
