The idyllic mountain village Sorge is 530 m above sea level in the valley of the river Warme Bode between Braunlage and Benneckenstein and with just under one hundred inhabitants it is one of the smallest, but probably also the most beautiful Harz communities in the Harz district.
For everyone interested in recent German history, the natural monument "Freiland-Grenzmuseum Sorge” offers impressive visual lessons on the historical venue of the former inner-German border.
From the station of Sorge you can take the Harzquerbahn to the Brocken mountain, the highest mountain in northern Germany. If we have awakened your curiosity, just take a look at the Harz world and convince yourself of the beauties of our landscape –
