The Harz mountains are an excellent holiday destination not just in the summertime but also in winter. No matter what time of year you choose to visit the Harz, you'll find plenty to see and do and cosy Harz holiday homes and holiday apartments to stay in.
In winter, the snow-covered mountains are a popular skiing and snowboarding destination. Germany's famous Christmas markets are also a hugely popular draw, and the Christmas markets in the Harz are no exception.
During the warmer months, skiers are replaced by hikers and mountain bikers. Take the cable car to the peak of the Wumberg, the highest mountain in the area, and hike down. While at the top, enjoy the fantastic views of the magnificent Harz scenery. Book one of the Harz holiday homes or self catering cottages in the mountains and take in the spectacular views and unforgettable sunsets every day during your holidays in the Harz. The more adventurous traveller will want to head to the ropes course in Bad Harzburg or for paragliding in Goslar.
Explore history in the Harz during your holiday. There are a number of museums chronicling the history of mining in the Harz where visitors can even enter an old mine and get a feel for the dangers of the profession. The town of Goslar is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embodying the feel and spirit of the days of yore.
After so much excitement and discovery in the Harz, head back to your Harz holiday rental to recharge for more of the same tomorrow!
