Moosl’s tip

“A great experience is the flashlight tour in the caves. You can only go through the cave with a flashlight and a helmet in the dark. But you have to be a little brave…”

The special experience for railroad fans. Our historic Rübelandbahn with its breathtaking sections of the route is unique and a rarity in terms of railway technology. Here visitors meet pure nostalgia.

Rappbodetalsperre with the suspension bridge
An imposing and impressive building to be amazed at with lots of action and entertainment and the longest suspension bridge of its kind. A visit should not be missing during your stay in the Harz region.

Observation point “Hoher Kleef”
An observation point with a unique view. A viewing pavilion in temple-like style awaits the visitor with an impressive view down to Rübeland.

Observation point Schornsteinberg
An observation point with a fascinating view of Rübeland. The Schornsteinberg actually owes its name to an old chimney.

Olms (Proteus anguinus Laurenti 1768) are caudates, that means amphibians that are related to our native amphibians and salamanders. Unique in Germany, these can only be viewed in the Hermanns Cave. Olms are very light-sensitive and shy animals, but maybe you will be lucky enough to spot these rare specimens on a guided tour?
