  • At checkout the combination was offered to ticket us and we need to tell Hexentanzplatz worth toboggan run until then and finally Rosstrappe better isn't

  • It is worth to wander from Thale up to the Hexentanzplatz or to ride the cable car. Above, you have a splendid view to the brocken and ways to stop.

  • During our visit was no special event on the Hexentanzplatz, but even without the ride on the toboggan run is fun, especially the younger visitors, and has a super prospect, can spend time relaxing or enjoying delicious food. And now with children, it is not boring.

  • 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.
