The Harz in the winter
Just 5-10 minutes from our Pension lie the villages Wildemann and Hahnenklee, a fantastic winter sports area; to compare to Winterberg only no queues at the lifts! Starting from December there is so much snow that one can spend a superb winter sports holiday.
Vast high plains with wooded mountain tops and deep snow covered valleys distinguish the Harz area. There are various ski slopes available and one can abundantly cross-country ski. The Harz attracts a lot of snowboarders and other sport lovers due to the very broad range of sports (skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, luging, walking, sledge dog racing, horse pulled sledge tours, curling).
The roads in the Harz in the winter are excellent to drive (winter tyres required!); Winter services work 24 hours a day to keep the roads clean.
