Schierke Things to Do

    The train runs between Wernigerode and Nordhausen with a service from Shierke to the summit of Mount Brocken.

    It was expensive (22 Euros each return Shierke - Mt Brocken) but worth every cent for the views on the way up and from the summit.

    Mount Brocken is 1142metres (3747 feet) high.

    Even in summer it can be very cold and very windy at the summit. There is a tea shop/cafe which is a good place to shelter from the wind. There is also a museum and several other buildings.

    Unfortunately while I was stood at the summit spinning round with my arms in the air singing "The hills are alive with the sound of music", we missed the train we were going to get back down the mountain and had to wait another half an hour for the next one. We were glad of the teashop to sit in for some warmth....

    Schierke is relatively snow reliable and offers more than 40 km of well groomed cross-country skiing tracks, which are connected to those of the neighbouring resorts like Braunlage etc. Beside the groomed tracks you also find a number "routes" which are not groomed, but usually in a condition that you can use them, too.

    Be prepared that the weather can change rapidly. We started with decent weather (although not sunny) in the village, but when we got closer to the higher areas the clouds got darker (pic 3) and later it even started snowing. This can make the tour much more challenging!

    Equipment: Bring your own. Rental is possible, too.
