Wernigerode from the castle


Wernigerode is a charming town in the Harz mountains. Wernigerode became a city in the 13-th century and it is from that period that the main attractions, the City Castle (Schloss) and the Rathaus date.

In the old center you will find many more old houses that are worth checking out. The market place is a good place to start exploring the center. After walking around for some time, you should head for Cafe Wien, a typical German bakery, in a house that's over 400 years old.

A visit to the Castle is worthwhile. It not only give you a fine view over the town, but also shows you an old castle in good condition. Train-stile buses drive to the castle regularly during the day for a small fee. On the castle grounds a music festival is held in summer.

Wernigerode is an ideal base for exploring the Harz. People who like trains should take a ride on the metre gauge rail, it's a great way of seeing some of the Harz.

Parking facilities for cars are abundant in Wernigerode.
