Car & Motorcycle

The B6 runs north to Hildesheim and east to Bad Harzburg, Wernigerode and Quedlinburg. The north–south A7 is reached via the B82. For Hahnenklee, take the B241.


Bad Harzburg–Hanover trains stop in Goslar, as do most trains on the Braunschweig–Göttingen line. There are direct trains to Wernigerode (€11, 40 minutes, every two hours) but services to most other destinations require changing trains in Vienenburg.
