Quiet and close to Hasselfelde

With direct access to the forest, the small district of Rotacker is especially popular among tourists. The Naturerlebnisdorf Blauvogel with more than 30 duplexes is an attraction for families and those looking for peace and quiet.

From Rotacker you can discover numerous hiking trails or, in winter, go straight to the groomed trails. A popular hiking trail leads to the Carlshausturm, an observation tower with a fantastic view over the Harz Mountains.

In the immediate vicinity is the idyllic Waldseebad, a natural outdoor pool with a playground, a spacious sunbathing lawn, a diving tower and a volley court.

The adjoining Hoyerteich with its neat surroundings is a biotope and worth seeing in every season.

Moosl’s tip

“Did you know that there is a diving tower and a large lawn for playing and romping about in the Waldseebad?”

Forest lake pool
Surrounded by forests, the Waldseebad Hasselfelde invites you to enjoy the summer. The lake is filled with Harz spring water and offers natural bathing fun. Large lawns around the lake offer space for sunbathing and playing.

Western town Pullman City Harz
Pullman City Harz is a living western town in the heart of the Harz. The adventure park offers children as well as adults a journey through the time of the “Wild West” with pure adventure – feel like a real Indian or cowboy for once.

Harzköhlerei Stemberghaus
Dark coals, flickering fires and steaming charcoal kilns – the Harzköhlerei is one of the last charcoal plants that produces up to 50 tons of charcoal annually in a traditional way. Visit the museum, the shop or the cozy and rustic hut with many events.
