Benneckenstein

Welcome UP IN THE HARZ

Benneckenstein

Idyllically located town in the triangle of three states

In the upper Rappbodetal 540-560 above sea level, the recreational and winter sports resort Benneckenstein is picturesquely located between meadows, valleys and forests, directly on the state borders to Lower Saxony and Thuringia. The all-season paradise offers its guests an extensive network of hiking trails with nature and adventure, medicinal herbs and mountain meadow educational trails.

Benneckenstein is also worth a visit as a winter sports resort. Sledging, skiing and ski jumping have always been at home here. Whether you are a family on vacation or an ambitious athlete, the extensive network of loipes around Benneckenstein and the drag lift on the Pfeiferberg leave nothing to be desired for active relaxation. But would you prefer to take the Harzer Schmalspurbahn to the Brocken mountain, take a horse-drawn sleigh ride, or would you prefer to stop by the Ostdeutsche Fahrzeugmuseum  first…?

Waldbühne Benneckenstein

The Waldbühne in Benneckenstein lay in a deep slumber for many years. In 2013 the association Kulturrevier Harz was founded. Their aim was to bring the idyllic forest stage to life and breathe new life into it.

They succeeded in doing this with the THEATERNATUR.
Every year in the summer months, THEATERNATUR offers a top-class cultural program with the Festival of Performing Arts.
