Coach holidays to Harz Mountains
Steeped in folklore and the setting of many famous fairytales, the Harz Mountains region is a magical landscape and the perfect destination to relive your favourite childhood stories by the Grimm Brothers.
When you visit the region on a coach trip it’s easy to see how they gained inspiration from the area’s outstanding natural beauty, with rolling countryside, deep gorges and rugged mountain peaks surrounding you from all angles. You can enjoy spectacular panoramic views perhaps best of all from Everstein's Castle, the original Cinderella’s castle which is now a ruin but boasts a beautiful viewpoint from its hilltop position. Meanwhile in Sababurg you can visit Sababurg Castle, the famous setting of Sleeping Beauty and in Goslar, the impressive Imperial Palace.
In the Harz Mountains the fairytales don’t end there. In the colourful, medieval town of Hamlyn you can relive the famous tale of the Pied Piper and wander amongst its narrow streets in the many shops, whilst the picture-book houses of Höxter make up the famous setting for Hansel and Gretel.
Although the region is popular throughout the year, the fairytale towns come to life in the run up to Christmas when they host some of Germany’s best Christmas Markets.
