Harztour 2008

short tour description / route characterization

The Harz Mountains are not without reason a popular destination for many motorcyclists!
Wonderful roads with endless curves and many beautiful places and towns along the way as well as reservoirs and other sights offer everything your heart desires.

Starting point of the tour is Goslar.

At first, the B 498 takes a winding route up to the Okerstausee. Here you leave the main road and continue towards Clausthal-Zellerfeld. At the entrance to the town, turn right onto the B 241 and follow it to Kreuzeck. The road leads down to Lautenthal over wonderful curves. From there, another detour via Wolfshagen to Langelsheim and past the Innerstestausee reservoir back to Lautenthal. Via Wildemann you reach the B 242, which you follow to the right until the turn-off to Bad Grund. Via Windhausen you continue to Osterode am Harz. A beautiful old town invites you for a walk. Then take the B 498 - along the Sösestausee - to the B 4 (Harzhochstraße). Turn off in the direction of Braunlage and drive south through the village. A small but fine road leads to Zorge. At Hohengeiß you meet the B 4 again, which you follow 5 km to the north. Then turn right towards Sorge. Before the village a narrow winding road branches off to Elend. Well, here Sorge and Elend are only 6 km apart!
Then follow the B 27 to Rübeland. Here turn right and steeply up to a tunnel. Behind the tunnel the road leads over the dam wall of the Rappboda dam. Then turn left onto the B 81 and after about 3 km turn right again into the Bodetal. A really wonderful route!!! After Treseburg the road continues south to Allrode. Turn left here and continue to Friedrichsbrunn. There turn left and pass the "Hexentanzplatz" to Thale.
The tour then continues along the northern edge of the Harz Mountains via Blankenburg to Werningerode. Werningerode also has a wonderful old town which invites you to visit. Via the B 6 the tour finally leads back to Goslar - also famous for its beautiful old town!
