Activities at the Romantik Hotel FreiWerk
On well-signposted hiking routes of different difficulties, you can reach destinations such as the Joseph’s Cross, a small Eiffel Tower from Harz, so to speak, the Lower Harz pond and ditch system or the tranquil community of Stiege with its wooden stave church. The hearts of nostalgia and railway fans beat faster when the steam locomotives of the famous Harz narrow-gauge railway puff through the forest and cross the hiking trails.
But the Harz mountains have much more than just idyllic nature. The region was already a settlement area in early history, and a few centuries later became the centre of power in the medieval German Empire and the cradle of German politics and culture. History has left its mark: Imperial palaces and castle ruins, cathedral treasures, half-timbered towns and churches, old mines and water installations, monuments and thousands of treasures in the museums of the region.
