Travel to the top of the Brocken by Brockenbahn and enjoy a ride on one of the oldest steam trains still in operation.
The train runs from the town of Vernigerode via Drei Ahnen Hohne and Schierke to the 1,142 metre high summit. The journey takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Here you can experience every inch and lurch of the journey as the train ploughs deeper and deeper into the forest. The upward climb is dramatic with gaps in the trees revealing steep cliffs and boulderstrewn waterfalls.
Thanks to medestino.com we also found the perfect hotel in Hahnenklee only 30 min drive from Schierke.
Photos will follow soon... :)
