A fairytale destination, but requires some advanced transport planning… or a car.
Distance from Berlin: 250km
Highest point: Wurmberg, 971m
Up to 400m elevation difference; opens mid-December, good snow cover since late January.
- Train to Bad Harzburg and back: from 50eur; could probably be less with the Schoenes Wochenende Ticket
- Local bus: ?
- 1-day ski pass: 32eur
When there is little snow in the region or in peak times Braunlage may become really crowded, up to the total absence of parking spots. So better come by the opening time.
