"Wernigerode...." Germany Off The Beaten Path Tip by Colzy

  Steam train...
by Colzy

I have visited Wernigerode quite a few times now and all have been amazingly enjoyable expriences. Wernigerode is situated in the Eastern part of the Harz mountains and is the northern terminus of the narrow guage railway which is such a treat. Taking the steam train to Mt Brocken (the highest peak in Northern Germany) is such a unique experience that can be enjoyed year round and the change in scenery between the two is truly remarkable.

Wernigerode is also a quaint town where you can enjoy the half-timbered housing and it's wonderful castle which houses an interesting medieval museum. It is a town that is easily accessible and a joy to walk around as it is not so big.
