Nordhausen Things to Do

  • Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp

    When the prisoners left the camp in the mornings and evenings they were counted on the muster ground. There was also a weekly count on the muster ground and hangings frequently took place in view of the other prisoners. During the early 1970’s the muster ground was landscaped and a speakers platform and curved wall erected, with the dedication...

  • Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp

    On the other side of the road from the tunnel complex is the former railway station. Parts of it can still be seen including a platform. Besides the various materials that were conveyed to and from the camp, prisoners were brought to the camp in cattle trucks. There is an example of the type of cattle truck used to convey the prisoners to the camp...

  • Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp

    The main tunnels that went into the mountain were labelled A & B, these were nearly 2 kms in length and 7m in height, with numerous adjoining tunnels connecting the 2 main tunnels. The tunnels were large enough to take trains on 2 lines, which took away the rockets. A & B tunnels were later sealed by the Russian after the camp was handed over after...

  • Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp

    One of only 2 buildings that has survived ravages of time, is the brick built crematorium that was built in 1944. In 1964 the building was altered and was turned into a museum in 1966. Since that date the building has again been altered and various memorials and plaques have been added. A sculpture by Jurgen von Woyski, dating from 1964 stands...

  • Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp

    The first place to visit at the camp is the brand new museum and visitors’ centre. This is a well laid out museum that gives a history of the camp with translations available from the help desk. There are a number of short films available to watch by former prisoners. I watched one by a wonderful man from the Czech Republic who told his story,...

    None of the prisoners’ barracks have survived. They were used for short time, as accommodation after the war and then destroyed. A barracks from a Nordhausen sub-camp was brought to the camp in 1991. Since 1995 the building has been used as a small museum. An explanation of the exhibits are in German but you can ask the staff for guide in the...

    After a hike up the mountains to the Burgruine Hohnstein, we completet the trip through the woods with a visit at Burggasthof Hohnstein right on the top of the castle's ruins. Environment there is as beautiful as the restaurant's menu taste. We had a wonderful, creamy fishsoup with garlic, and tea. Irish music in the back made it all almost perfect. Except it's rather chilly in the restaurant so one better has a pullover at handy.

Nordhausen Off The Beaten Path

  • Kart Racing

    If one doesn't mind a 2 hours drive, which it takes from Nordhausen to Bispingen (on my page earlier), then there at Ralf Schumacher Kart & Bowl Kart Center, visitors can get an extra ordinary opportunity to do or to observe motorsport. Wasn't sure yet whether to put this among sports and outdoors or off the beaten path. Sure is, one definitively...

  • Romantic health resort Neustadt

    The most I enjoyed about that little, romantic health resort Neustadt, was its beautiful park with a lake and countless ducks, and little boats to rent with paddles. Neustadt is about 6 km from Nordhausen. This small town, on the southern slopes of the Harz, is surrounded by beautiful mixed forests and in the midst of a particularly healthy...
