Schierke town hall

Schierke is a small spa town, 600 metres high, in the Harz Mountains. It is a popular tourist destination, not least as a base for walks up the Brocken, the highest mountain in the region.

Schierke is home to a well-known local drink, Schierker Feuerstein, named after the Feuerstein rocks above the town.

Understand[edit]

Schierke is in the heart of the Harz, surrounded by the forests of the National Park. It has a long tradition as a spa and consequently has dozens of hotels and restaurants.

The Cold Bode (Kalte Bode) river flows through Schierke into the Bode Valley.

Schierke is on the Brocken Railway, a narrow gauge line that starts in Wernigerode. It is also accessible by road from the B4, the main north-south federal road through the Harz.
