Great view at 1000 metres

High up on the Wurmberg is the 32m-high Wurmberg Tower, just completed in 2019, whose highest vantage point can be climbed via 162 steps or quite comfortably by lift, and from which the Brocken opposite can also be admired in all its glory.

The Wurmberg Tower is an architectural gem, where its visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the Harzumland, the Thuringian Forest and even further afield. The somewhat higher Brocken, at 1141m, rises in the direction of the north. Further east, in good weather, the no less famous Kyffhäuser can attract attention, as can the Hohe Meißner to the south.
When visibility is excellent in autumn and winter, the impressive landscape can sometimes reach as far as the North Sea. On some days it is also possible to float above the clouds and enjoy a fascinating view into the distance and of the mountain neighbour Brocken, which also peeks out from the carpet of clouds.

From the Wurmberg tower you can not only see far, but it also lets you look down 30 metres. For those who like it and can handle it, there is an opening in the floor with a thick glass pane.

If the climb up the Wurmberg tower has already taken too long or been too strenuous, you can treat yourself to a cheerful and somewhat faster descent down the tower and arrive at the bottom in no time at all via the 30-metre-long tunnel slide.
