Harz – Witches and Walpurgis Night


There are hundreds of legends and stories telling of the devilish powers of the witches in the Harz mountains. Probably the most well-known is the mysterious Walpurgis night – on the last night of April every year witches from all over Germany meet for a witches’ dance in the Harz mountains. Nowadays visitors can attend the eerily beautiful spectacle. You can also discover the mystical mountain world of the Lower Saxon hills on a hike on the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg (Harz Witches' Trail).
