Hirtenstieg Brocken Eckertalsperre Tour

This demanding mountainbike route leads with an 846 meter ascent directly from Bad Harzburg to the 1,142 meter high Brocken The physically demanding ascent to the highest mountain in Northern Germany is rewarded with an impressive view far out into the Harz foreland. With a long descent through the scenic Hochharz, it then goes through dark green valleys back to around 400 meters in the region of the Oker reservoir. After a short rolling section, there are again two tough climbs with steep percentages. Over the Goldberg-mountain near Bad Harzburg it goes through deciduous and mixed forests back into the valley and above the town back to the starting point of the tour in Bad Harzburg.
