The walk to Torfthaus is beautiful, especially now (it isautumn), with much color on the road. At times we crossed red carpet areas, or forest green, and deep dark forests, a lake now, after a river, forest during the 9 km long that separate it from Bad Harzburg. Its 22 inhabitants work in tourism. It is rather simple, its greatest charm is the journey that brings us back to Bad Harzburg ( base camp for our rides as mountaineers). About 900 m high. Located in the center of the Harz National Park, the views are breathtaking (not far from here, we can also see Broken) Torfthaus has a small ski lift and a toboggan run, this along with the restaurant and any accommodations are all the services they offer (more than enough, the place gives the rest).
