At the railway junction of the Harzer Schmalspurbahn
The Harz village of Stiege is to be found northwest of the valley Selketal between Hasselfelde and Güntersberge.
The two lakes in the center of the village are a special sight for sore eyes.
The landmark of the community, which is well over 1,000 years old, is the Stieger Schloss. In the 18th century, a wooden church was built, which still characterizes this tranquil ensemble above the lake in Stiege to this day.
A MUST for every rail enthusiast is Europe’s smallest turning loop, which belongs to the Selketalbahn.
Fans of stage hiking will get their money’s worth as much with the history trail “Wege deutscher Kaiser und Könige” as with the Selketal-Stieg and the pilgrims’ path VIA ROMEA.
We look forward to your visit – here UP IN THE HARZ!
