Lautenthal is located in a valley in the north-western Oberharz above the Innerste-Talsperre. The place, which was created in 1524 for the old mining, provides a lot of history and a unique mining landscape with large heaps. Iron ore was mined in the mine until 1959. The place is surrounded by mountain meadows, steep mountain slopes and the Innerste river, which runs through the valley. From here, mountainbikers can start day trips in all directions away from the overcrowded areas in the Harz mountains. The area offers a very diverse network of trails with steep climbs and steep trail descents. Depending on the direction you will find many mixed forests, spruce forests or fields in the Harz foreland. The closest bikepark is about seven kilometers further uphill in Hahnenklee.
