  • Up here, we looked at a presentation of the Hexentanzes and the Witch's House and went with the Harzbob. You'll pay extra for each activity. for the entrance to the Park costs nothing. We have not managed the animal park. You can drive the car to the Hexentanzplatz and parking (extra charge) or leave the car in Thale in the parking lot of the cable cars, and with the cable car up and again shut down. We parked the car in Thale kaben and bought a Combi-ticket mountain - and Valley drive including a ride on the Harzbob for 8 euro of per adult and 5 Euto per child. Fair prices and it did like us up here.

  • For families a real highlight. Animal Park, cable car, Bob head and one great views, there's something just for everyone. It was already mentioned, but also we found the price of admission for the Witch's House a little too high.

  • Sure, Saturday and Sunday not here must be high, but Tuesday morning 10: 00 it was super. Calm and relaxed ride with the cable car (the Green gondola with see-through take). On the Hexentanzplatz, there's a lot of fun and fun and of course the evil 3erGespann with Hellhound and witch Wade Linde, and the inverted Witch's House. The view is breathtaking over the rosstrappe. Sufficient parking, and restaurants and souvenir shops available.

  • Great view and a nice ride from Thale city in the gondola with glass floors!. The shops and restaurants are a little bit on tourist trap level, but I would recommend to go there anyway for the view. The gondola and the rodelbahn as a combined ticket is ok for €8 (adult)
  • Beware. Tourist trap. There are lots of things that children 3-10 years old will like. But the parking is extremely expensive (€3.50 for just half an hour!) there is free parking though. To find it drive up the parking gate but do not go in. Instead, turn around and drive back down, follow the sign "ausfahrt" drive about 200m and you will find lots of free parking on both sides of the road. The little bobsled track is too slow for adults but good if a child is on the cart too. The zoo is over priced, go to the really good one in Wenigerode instead.
  • Very nice site
  • The food is cooked and will keep warm or reheated. Not very appealing. The coffee was good. Cakes and tarts looked good

  • Sorry. Worth at best for small children. Culinary, I can only warn the takeaways. Left with a view of the Valley I haven't tried the restaurant. Could be better than the snacks. There are more than enough souvenir stalls.
