Sleeping

Accommodation in the Harz ranges from campgrounds to country inns, holiday flats, health spas and the occasional boutique hotel. Quedlinburg and Goslar have a good selection including the swankiest digs, whilst Wernigerode has the most variety. In the height of summer, rooms fill fast on weekends: be sure to book ahead. A local Kurtaxe (resort tax; up to €3 per night) is charged in most towns.
