Harz mountains

Recommended
With their seemingly endless dark forests, old houses straight out of a Brothers' Grimm fairy tale, peat bogs and mysterious castles, the Harz mountains have a romantic appeal. The highest peak of this crystalline mountain range is the Brocken, a bare summit where witches are still said to meet on the first night in May. The area, a national park, is ideal for outdoor activities such as hiking (8 000km of footpaths), mountain biking, canoeing, skiing and rock-climbing.
