Welcome in the hiking paradise

The small Harz town of Trautenstein is part of the Stadt Oberharz am Brocken. From here, many sights can be hiked, reached by bus or by car in a very short time.

The surroundings of the place are characterized by many river valleys and the reservoir area of the rivers Bode and Rappbode. The landmark of the district is the half-timbered church built in 1701, a beauty spot. The nave with its wagon ceiling, which is painted with clouds and stars, is worth seeing.

In winter, an extensive network of loipes is groomed around the place.
The connections to the neighboring towns of Hasselfelde and Benneckenstein are also available.

We are waiting for you – here UP IN THE HARZ!

St. Salvator Church
The St. Salvator Church is a baroque half-timbered church from 1701. For the 300th anniversary, the church was extensively renovated and now shines like new with the starry sky. The Engelhardt organ with its free-standing keydesk and eleven stops from 1834 has also been playable again since 2008.

The observation point “Carlshaus” is located on the “Carlshaushöhe” mountain at 626m above sea level. This rises southwest of Hasselfelde or north of Trautenstein. The tower serves as a radio and observation tower. With an open steel construction, it rises about 30m in height.

Vorsperre Rappbode
An important helper in a picturesque Harz scenery. The river “Rappbode”, which winds from Benneckenstein through Trautenstein is the namesake for the Rappbodevorsperre. Like the Hasselvorsperre, the Rappbodevorsperre has an upstream function and is used to pre-purify the water from the Rappbodetalsperre.

The former “Chronistenstübchen” is now the Heimatstube of Trautenstein. It gives guests and those interested in history an insight into the past of the town and the Harz. Thematic main topics are spread across five rooms – small but excellent.

Moosl’s tip

“In Trautenstein there is a great children’s playground and with a little luck you can see horses and sheeps in the fields.”
