  • The views of the Bode Valley are totally stunning and it has some interesting things there. I think I will come again on Spring to enjoy it more, some places were closed.  more »
  • Great views from the top of Hexentanzplatz but what I really enjoyed was the hike up the mountain. Quite a lot of activities on the top but some places were closed. Think mid summer is the best time t...  more »
  • Many activities on the Hexentanzplatz and also in the valley below around the village of Thale. Kids will love the activity park at the cable car station in Thale.  more »
  • 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.
