The climate of Harz Mountains (Germany)
The Harz Mountains are a mountain range in central Germany mainly known as a winter sports region. The highest peak is situated at an altitude of 1,142 meters. The region is very popular among people who love the great outdoors. During the winter you can go skiing and cross country skiing. During the summer you can go hiking, horseback riding and cycling. The Harz Mountains are in beautiful surroundings. Several parts are preservation sites. The surrounding villages and cities offer many attractions as well. During the winter you can visit one of the Christmas markets. Differences in temperatures can be recorded in the Harz Mountains. If you travel higher up the mountain temperatures drop. Especially during the night it may get cold. During fall heavy rainfall is not uncommon. The warm air supplied from the north sea is suddenly forced to rise because of the mountains. When this occurs the air cools down rapidly which causes precipitation and thunderstorms. During the winter the higher regions get a blanket of snow.
