Braunlage is the place to be for winter sports in the Harz Mountains and brings fun for the whole family!
The parking lot at the valley station is less than 3 kilometers away from the camping site!
Numerous kilometers of cross-country ski trails extend in and around Braunlage. From the campsite you have a direct access to the cross-country ski trail network and can practically start from your caravan.
The Wurmberg is the largest and most snow-sure alpine ski area in Northern Germany. Long downhill runs of all levels of difficulty, a fantastic panorama and modern lifts are its great strengths.
Alpine skiers and snowboarders can glide down well-groomed slopes of various degrees of difficulty. In addition to the 3,500m and 4,300m long runs, the exceptional snow-assured northern slope of the Wurmberg provides unadulterated skiing fun!
The 1.600m long toboggan run brings fun for young and old. The cable car takes you to the middle station, from where you can whizz down into the valley on your sled.
The toboggan run is equipped with a snowmaking system and thus becomes the longest toboggan run in Germany. The toboggan run is also equipped with snow cannons and is the longest snow sure toboggan run of Germany!
Snow hiking, snowshoeing and Nordic walking is of course also possible! Many kilometers through the beautiful landscape of the Harz Mountains. Just enjoy!
