Braunlage in Winter

Skiing, tobogganing, cross-country skiing - you'll find the ideal conditions for your winter holiday here. Braunlage is one of the oldest and most important winter sports locations in Germany. The first skis were produced here in 1883.

Alpine skiing and snowboarding

Go Alpine skiing in the centre of Braunlage: Use our ski lifts on the Hasselkopf mountaintop or on the ski slope at the town hall! With appropriate snow conditions, skiing by floodlight is also offered there. The Wurmberg winter sports area was already developed and is being expanded further, and gets a firm covering of snow, which can be produced by using snow canons. Braunlage is a paradise for winter sports fans.

Cross-country skiing

In and around Braunlage there are fantastic opportunities for cross-country skiing. The trails are arranged variedly according to different levels of difficulty, and blend wonderfully well into the enchanting Harz landscape.


Many toboggan runs make sure of fun and fast rides down to the valley. Toboggans are available for rent everywhere. The snowtubing area on Hexenritt is great for even more fun. Here, it's all about racing downhill in tubular tyres along a eine 200 m long wave track – enormous fun for the whole family!


A Yeti-style hike! With snowshoes, a guide leads you securely along beautiful and lonely paths through the wintery mountainous landscape - with the sensation of complete freedom.
