Burgseilbahn

Reviewed By HughJarres - London, United Kingdom

In an area with plenty of outdoor pursuits, the chairlift is certainly the thing to do in Bad Lauterberg. It's quite a short journey to the top, but you'll be rewarded with spectacular views across the town and up the Oder valley. There's a decent restaurant at the top that struggles to cope on sunny days, but the food is hearty even if the beer is indifferent.

Grenzlandmuseum Bad Sachsa

Reviewed By Jean-Paul S

While staying in Bad Sachsa you're very close to the former border between east and west Germany. This little museum is dedicated to this 45 years of separation focusing on the border itself.
There is much to see, especially the fences are impresive.
When you're there, make sure you get the guided tour as this will provide context and will help you feel and understand the way it was.
I'm not sure whether the guided tour is available in English, as ours was in German.

This cave is a little gem hidden inside a very nice landscape. And the 50 minutes tour is anything but boring. Highly recommended!

Kloster Walkenried

Reviewed By EuTravelMag - Europe

The Walkenried Abbey has been designated part of a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO and oozes of history. The museum is small but informative, with English captions on most of the exhibition.
The only downside is was, that they didn't accept VISA credit card when we visited, but thankfully we had cash.
Worth a visit. If not just to feel the presence of history.

Hammerschmiede

Reviewed By Bizzy6

We came here on a Tuesday wanting to do a tour only to be told they are only on certain days and have to be booked well in advance through the website. Nevertheless the lovely young man in the shop took lots of time to talk to us about the operation and we ended up trying (and buying) several whiskies.

Trata-se de um parque muito grande. É muito bonito. . Em minha visita, tivemos a sorte de vermos um conserto, em meio ao parque. Neste parque tem um lugar, como se fosse uma piscina pewuena, que eles dizem para as pessoas andarem em voltas, porque faz bem para a saúde.

Salztal Paradies

Reviewed By PvE1964 - Ridderkerk, The Netherlands

Excellent place to spend a few hours or a whole day. It has pools for all ages from the very small to adults. The whole place is large and has a lot of pools. Most are indoor but one can also go outdoors. It was very clean. We went there twice and we find this is the major attraction in Bad Sachsa.

Herzberg Castle

Reviewed By BRC317 - Copenhagen, Denmark

Herzberg castle is situated on a fairly steep hill in the town of Herzberg am Harz. It was the ancestral home of the Guelph family and was originally built 900 years ago, though the present buildings date from 1528.
There are two ways to reach this charming fourwinged renaissance castle. If you energetic take the shortcut via the shady, but steep path up to the top of the hill, if not just follow the road.
Through the centuries the buildings have been used for various purposes; fortress, ducal residence, dowager-duchess retreat, hunting-lodge, administrative centre, law-court and museum.
The museum contains a number of very interesting collections:
The Guelph family collection.
A rare facsimile of Henry the Lion's evangeliary; one of the most beautiful and valuable medieval German illuminated manuscripts.
An exhibition about Herzberg's firearms industries.
An exhibition about the history of mining and forestry in the Harz Mountains.
An Engelhardt organ (mid 19th century) in complete working order.
Herzberg Esperanto museum.
Other points of interest are the Knights' Hall and the Castle Restaurant.
I did not visit the restaurant, because I was invited for afternoon tea in the Knights' Hall. As a guest I did not pay for admission to the castle. Information about admission charges etc is available: http://en.harzinfo.de/urlaubsorte/alle-urlaubsorte-im-harz/herzberg.htm
