Campsites in Harz: camping in varied countryside

Harz is the most northerly of Germany’s low mountain ranges, with the highest peak of Brocken at 1141m. The mountainscape of Harz is perfect for outdoor activities, from mountain biking on Wurmberg to monster rollers (downhill oversize scooters) with the whole family in Braunlage.

This beautiful area is perfect for unwinding. The beautiful surroundings, fresh air and mineral water from the mountains have made Harz an ideal location for sanatoria, and is one of the best regions in Germany to visit a spa. The thermal baths in Altenau and sanatoria in Bad Grund and Bad Lauterberg are highly recommended as places to indulge.

Harz boasts a number of fine campsites, all of which you can camp on in your own tent or caravan. Children won’t bore easily on a campsite and many sites in Harz have play areas and swimming pools.
