On the traces of Heinrich Heine
The approximately 12-kilometre-long Heinrich-Heine-Weg, leading up to highest mountain of the Harz, the legendary Brocken, is the most beautiful trail to the Brocken. In 1824, the poet followed this way on his Harzreise. Through untamed beech forest, passing bizarre rock formations the hiking trail leads through the Ilsetal, along the Ilsestein and the Ilse falls. The Heinrich-Heine-Weg is a continuous climb, before the last kilometres lead on a steep track to the summit of the Brocken.
