written by Juliane Bahr
Piles of snow welcomed us when we spent some days in the Harz Mountains in April 2013. The region is definitely worth visiting in winter. The small lanes with its half-timbered houses in Quedlinburg and Wernigerode take you right back to the Middle-Ages. And with all the snow and the lights it looks so peaceful and very charming. We absolutely wanted to visit the Brocken with the typical narrow gauge railway. To really enjoy the view out over the Harz Mountains you need good weather conditions. As far as I know there are about 310 foggy days per year, so our chances were very low. As over the last years we often drove past the Brocken without visiting it, we decided that we now need to use this opportunity. Finally we spent just about 1.5 hrs at the top with visibility down to only 5-6 metres and an arctic breeze. Some day we will return in summer just because of the Brocken which is still marked in our ‘to-visit-list’.
