Up the mountain and there was snow when we got there! Sometimes not much of a view then other times - wow!!!
A good experience at a reasonable cost, but be careful if changing train at Drei Annen Hohe as we could not get onto the next train, too many passengers and had to wait for 2 hours, thus decided to go back to Weinigerode without having visited the top.
The trip on the train was a great way to see the countryside. Our weather was poor at there was no snow and poor visibility from the mountain. We enjoyed the trip there and back and the train was comfortable and warm and a relief from the cold mountain wind.
Wonderful well kept and well run railway its out of this world friendly staff,clean coaches clean stations clean toilets wonderful food at good prices
I visited Weringerode while on a G R J holiday, but no visit to the area would be complete without a trip up to Broken on the steam train. Visited in December with snow on the ground at higher levels and particularly deep at Broken. Thick fog destroyed any views, but the journey was great. Fortunately the cost of the... More
Yes it is quite expensive 32 Euros [about £25] for a return to Brocken but for that you get about 2 hours each way! We went in a party in good weather - if cold - the heating was on and very snug! As others say the staff speak little - if any - English but were on our trip... More

The bad weather had come in by the time we were at the top and we couldn't see anything...shame as it wasn't till after lunch we realised there was an interesting... More

We used a 3-day Harz tourist ticket to travel all the way to Norderhausen, some 60 kilometers from Wernigerode, using both the little diesel cars and the steam trains. We also did a trip to the top... More
Well, being a steam engine enthusiast, what else did you expect me to say. Buy a 5 day or 3 day pass, and indulge your steam dreams for a while. Be prepared to be blown off your feet at Brocken Summit! And do try the local pick-me-up liqueur on the train. Almost no English spoken, so a little German is... More
We travelled with a group of friends from out of country. The staff selling the tickets and the train operating staff were very very unfriendly. There was a toilet on the train station, where we had to pay a fee to use it. It was very very dirty. The train coaches were not heated and it was only about 5°C... More
