Popular, panoramic hiking trail in the Harz National Park, Saxony-Anhalt. This route leads from Schierke over the Eckerlochstieg to the Brocken and back. It is one of the most popular hikes in the Harz Mountains and is the shortest route on the Brocken. The 500 meters in altitude that are overcome increase continuously over the course of the route. Sturdy shoes are a basic requirement. Any effort, however, is offset by fantastic views. The route begins in the town of Schierke and initially leads over Sandbrinkstraße. Until you cross the Brocken Railway, you hike through forests and along a rocky landscape. To get to the Eckerlochstieg, turn right and follow the Black Schluftwasser for a while before turning right again. The last part of the ascent to the Brocken runs along the Brockenstrasse. Once at the top you can stop for a refreshment in the restaurant while you relax and enjoy the view before you make your way back to Schierke. Highlights of the hike: - View from the Watzmann - Berchtesgaden AlpsShow more
