The low mountain range has already been praised by German writers like Goethe and Heine for its varied natural beauty. The Harz Mountains are among the best developed and most varied hiking regions in Europe. Cliffs and mountains, lakes to relax and stalactite caves to admire await every visitor. The extensive beech forests are especially suitable for hiking in spring and autumn.
