Trendy Harz

For most Danes, Germany is a “drive through country” on the way to more sunny and exiting holiday places in the southern part of Europe. It’s a shame, because there are so many interesting and beautiful places to visit in Germany.

One of them is Harz with Germany’s most northern mountains, just 4 hours drive from Copenhagen. And for those who think Harz is for old people, think again. I went there with my family for a few days in January, and despite the fact that there was no snow and, accordingly, no skiing opportunities (which was actually what we had hoped for), there were lots of tourists, in all age groups. Actually, with a majority of younger couples.

They were hiking, shopping, dining, exploring, enjoying the beautiful scenery, the historic town of Goslar, and of course the many wellness facilities. We had a great time, and I would love to come back!
