The Harzer Klosterwanderweg (Monastery Hiking Trail) invites for a pilgrimage tour through the Harz mountains. From Thale to Goslar via Drübeck and Ilsenburg the path leads in parts through lonely landscapes and over narrow paths. Escaping from everyday life, letting thoughts flow and recollecting yourself is possible here. You will be walking on parts of the "Straße der Romanik" (Romanesque Road) and discover a few monasteries of our region. You have to count from three to six days including overnight stays, among others at the Drübeck Convent, to ramble along the approximately 74 kilometres with its planned stages. Discover also the unique 15 Angel Benches "Engelsbänke" along the Harzer Klosterwanderweg, with stylised angel wings. The benches are decorated with individual words of blessing and a QR-Code with information on the trails and places.
DURATION: about 17 hours
LENGTH: about 67 kilometres
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: moderate
