They say that the witched came her to meet. It must be the misty air that makes everything seem bewitched up here.
From Harzburg we rushed to the mountain to enjoy a ride that good autumn time is allowing us this November. The tourist office is located in a small park there before the bridge that takes us into the Harz forest, from which follow the signs marked with a green imp carved wooden signs found in the woods.
The walk, although long (about 4 hours to climb to the 1142m summit of the massif) is beautiful. It's a huge coppery forest that at times goes into total darkness but then back into the light. You'll cross a river and a huge lake, then end with the toughest stretch, climbing on a stone walkway that leads to the summit.
