    What happens if you take Luther out of Lutherstadt Wittenberg? Actually that's rather difficult when the influence of Luther on history, and religious history in particular, is so great.

  • Wernigerode-Another Architectural Gem

    Harz Things to Do

    Travelling east from Bad Lauterburg, Wernigerode is another city well worth a visit. The Harzquerbahn sets out from Wernigerode on it's journey to the Brocken and you can board here or at Drei Ahne Honen. As in Quedlinburg and Goslar the architecture in the centre is stunning, with wooden beamed, highly ornate buildingson all sides. This city has a...

    Harz Things to Do

    Once you have gotten over the excitement of reaching the top of the Brocken you must then find ways to amuse yourself until it's time to catch the train back to Wernigerode. If the museum doesn't appeal then I suggest taking a hike downhill along one of the wellmarked trails. This is great fun but don't be overenthusiastic - climbing back up is a...

  • Over60's Profile Photo

    by Over60 Updated Apr 28, 2007

    For a truly impressive and very well preserved city wall within day trip range from Berlin and Hanover, I recommend Tangermünde. There is not an enormous amount to do here, but I managed to find a nice cafe for lunch and an outdoor ice cream parlor for an afternoon snack. The attraction here is the wall itself, along with the other historic buildings. In comparison to the tourist overrun old towns of West Germany, its a delight to stroll around here. Warning: Not much English spoken here.
