  • Views of the city and the gap is great. But the area itself is something tourist bras. Most, however, was closed but one could get a feel of quality. Bronceskulpturerne of the Witch and trolls is, however, well done.

  • We were today on the Hexentanzplatz. The cable car was decommissioned due to wind, so we drove up with the car. There was open only a souvenir shop, a restaurant and a barbecue joint. Even the Witch's House was closed. We have visited the Zoo, which took a stand as in GDR times on the newly built enclosure. We and other visitors to the Billy goat were attacked in the Petting Zoo. The greatest nerve I had to then but experience in the payment of parking tickets €5 for 2 hours, which is rip off.

  • A children's play paradise for children, super nice hiking, scenic views. In short if you are in the area you should definitely go.

  • 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 ;)

  • This time of year not a very interesting place. None of the attractions has opened but only the restaurants and souvenir shops. Also the small animal park is nothing special. The prices in the parking lot are absolutely outrageous. 1 h €3.50 and then every 30 minutes 50 = cents. Because the cable car with free parking space in Thale worth much more.

  • You weren't in the Harz mountains, if you weren't on the Hexentanzplatz. Granted, it's not exactly cheap, but there is much to see and to experience. I personally would not spend the Walpurgis night (too much is going on me), but otherwise you can't have good several hours of fun. Mountain Theatre, Harzbob, cable car, animal park, gastronomy, witch's House... walk easy to reach everything.

  • out of season not much management (stores) includes partially already early or not have partially come on. Ideal for families with small animal park and all-weather bobsleigh run, food stalls and restaurant. Beautiful views to Thale and the Rosstrape... Parking somewhat expensive (starting at 3.50 euro) and unfortunately signposted to barrier no prices!

  • Pretty cookies. In bad weather the Sommertodelbahn is 400 metres away. Good views and a few attractions are always open.
