Welcome to Bad Harzburg

Once a top holiday destination of the former GDR, parts of this quiet spa town straddling the main road into the mountains could use some TLC, but recent revitalisation of existing infrastructure, some new construction and tourist attractions, particularly the uberpopular Baumwipfelpad forest-canopy walk, continue to breathe new life into this fading former beauty.

Unless you're wanting to escape the summer crowds drawn to the region's historical villages, most will elect to overnight in nearby Goslar, but be sure to pass through for a few daylight hours, if you're able to.
