  • Wonderful beautiful and small charming town. We had to lift up, and was a little disappointed that they didn't take credit cards here, so we had to walk 30 minutes After an ATM. It was rather a shame ag spend the time on this. But when we finally got up, we were greeted by the beautiful views. A lot of stalls, with fun stuff and we bought a magnet for the fridge:) we got a delicious wurst, and staff at bodet was friendly. Beautiful area, even if it is out of season

  • Top course with some statues and various snacks and souvenir shops, can be reached by cable car or the car. There is a viewing platform overlooking Thale and you can go on foot to the Walpurgishalle and the Harzeum, where you can enjoy a good view. But all very touristy nothing "rustic" shaped,-the prices in the shops and food stalls are very moderate for such a tourist place.

  • In the winter, 20% of the species in the wintering grounds are good. It is with the Wolf Pack, which is not to visit due to blocked access. All this for the same ticket price as if the animal park 100% usable. A conversation evades the staff and without saying a word refers to the note "no complaints after entering". A Schlem who suspected intent.
