  • The resin is lonely and originally even in the summer in many parts, one is surprised when one reaches the Hexentanzplatz with his hustle and bustle. A huge parking lot, surrounded by souvenir shops and gastronomic stalls. The prices and parking fees are high, the staff is largely unfriendly. There are many souvenirs of witches, but hardly any references to the backgrounds of the Sage. However, the panoramic view of the mountain world is worthwhile - you can better enjoy this however when hiking.

  • So was there, told me that this visit to the witches simply part to the resin. So up on the scooter, and there, just found and tell me so very disappointing for me a witch is there and that was it! (see photo) Net was the view and the rest is actually all mass tourism with lot of hype

  • Here there is a hive of activity, rows of souvenir stalls. However the environment is beautiful, these should be explored. Families with children are probably more target group.

  • 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
  • So we were happy. A great view from anywhere. Great hiking trails. Our daughter had lots of fun there, be it with the cable cars, bobsled or the game world with many possibilities. So whether young or old worth seeing is definitely it.

  • The parking is expensive and the unfortunately mediocre local restaurants (it is worth but in the hotel restaurant because of the prospect of something to eat / drink) Nevertheless, the place with the breathtaking view is a must for any visitor to resin. There are all attractions for big and small, we like it but rather out of season, because there are not so many booths with kitschy souvenirs. The children like it sure as it is ;)

  • Unfortunately, all were closed as we get there. Landscape worth seeing, but unfortunately something cluttered with shops.
