With these photos I would like to give you an impression of the wonderfully beautiful Harz in

Germany and its foreland.  As tour manager and town guide in this region I have become an enthusiastic fan of this attractive piece of earth. The photos are continually replaced by new ones.

New towns and new themes will soon enlarge this photo album as well.

 

I invite you to open this gigantic picture book and get to know the landscapes, towns and treasures of this entire region. There are now 160.000 photos, and the photos are increasing in beauty all the time!

 

I wish you a lovely exploration of the Harz and the entire region.
