It’s been quite a while since my last post here. I don’t really know why that happened but - anyway - here are some pictures from the hike to the top of the Brocken that Jessie and I did last weekend. Wolfsburg didn’t really get much snow yet, but the Harz is only an hour away and has a much colder climate.
The Brocken is located right next to the former German border and so far, I’ve only hiked up the mountain from Schierke, which is on the east-side. This time, we started from Torfhaus which is in the west and from there, the slightly longer “Goethe Trail” (yes - he apparently shat here, too) leads to the summit.
