The climate of Harz (Germany)
The Harz is the highest mountain range in Germany and is located centrally in the country. The Harz extends across parts of three federal states: Saxony-Anhalt, Lower Saxony and Thuringia. The highest peak is Mount Brocken with an altitude of 1,142 meters. The Harz National Park is situated in the Harz. This park is home to several animal species including the black stork and the Eurasian lynx. The Harz was an important mining region for a long time. However, when the last mine closed it became a very popular holiday region. Most tourists travel here to go hiking or cycling. Another attraction are the steam trains of the Harzer Schmalspurbahnen. You can take beautiful rides through the Harz on these trains. The most beautiful trip is the one over the Brocken Railway. The Harz has a moderate maritime climate. What the weather is like depends on where in the Harz you are. The climate in the lower regions is much different to the climate in the higher regions. In general it is colder and windier in the higher regions. The figures below are long term averages which do not apply to the entire mountain range.
