Enchants with unspoiled Harz landscape

Located in the middle of the Harz forests, the town of Königshütte is situated with its wild and romantic panorama and extensive forest and meadow areas. Here the rivers Cold and Warm Bode unite before flowing together into the Königshütter Talsperre.

For hikers as well as nature lovers, the traditional hut location is just as perfect. The famous Harzer-Hexen-Stieg divides into 2 routes in Königshütte. It offers an outstanding and varied hiking experience.

The Burgruine Königshütte towers high above Königshütte. Here the hiker is offered a tranquil, beautiful landscape panorama on the Brocken mountain and the Wurmberg mountain. With a little rest on the barbecue area you can watch the bickering waterfall and get a stamp from the Harzer Wandernadel.

We look forward to your visit – here UP IN THE HARZ!

Moosl’s tip

Moosl’s tip

“You absolutely have to visit the waterfall in Königshütte. Here you can wonderfully run with bare feet through the stream in summer, play and have a picnic with your parents. … And there is also a stamp of the Harzer Wandernadel on top!”

Waterfall of Königshütte
Refreshing in summer and fascinating in winter. A small waterfall was artificially, but harmoniously and dreamily embedded in the unspoiled landscape. At the foot of the waterfall, an idyllic resting and barbecue area with a secluded and clear bickering stream invites hikers and nature lovers to linger.

Ruine Königsburg
A ruin with a majestic view of the Harz town and the Harz mountains and a stamp of the Harzer Wandernadel.

The Königshütte Heimatstube opened its premises in August 2000. A faithful Harz living room was recreated in the building, which was furnished with great effort and love for detail.

Talsperre Königshütte (Trogfurther Brücke)
A dam with important tasks. For all hiking enthusiasts, the dam offers a wonderful circular hiking trail around the artificial lake. You also walk part of the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg and the path of German emperors and kings of the Middle Ages in the Harz.

Talsperre Mandelholz
The beautiful Talsperre Mandelholz dams the water of the river “Kalte Bode” and is located in a romantic landscape surrounded by lush mountain meadows and a rich fir forest. It is possible to bypass the reservoir completely and take the picturesque nature in.
