The White Hart is a great vantage point in Treseburg, located about 150 meters above the Bodetal. From here you have an excellent view over the valley to the Brocken. The observation tower Prinzensicht (stamping point 70) is another viewpoint that can be found near the Hexentanzplaazes. From here you can also look over the Bodetal. On the opposite side of the valley you can see a cross, which was built in honor of the fallen in World War Freiherr Hellmuth to Bibra.Show more

Begin from Hexentanzplatz Parking in Thale. This is a very beautiful valley hike along the Bode on rocky ground. The descent to the valley station is very rocky and relatively steep. If necessary, use the adjoining road to the valley or the cable car for 3 euros (downhill). You may also use the Bodetal for the way back from Treseburg - it is much nicer than the "forest trail hike" from Treseburg to the Hexentanzplatz (but then you have fewer views). Alternative 2: if you do not want to go uphill, you can go backwards on the tour and take the cable car from Thale to the Hexentanzplatz.Show more
