At Germany’s cradle

Harz is lots more than just an idyllic nature’s scenery. Its richness of natural resources made it become an important settlement area already back in early history – and several centuries later on it became the center of power of the medieval German Empire and the cradle of German policy and culture. History has left its traces: royal palaces and castle ruins, towns of timber-framed houses and churches, old pits and water installations, monuments and thousands of treasures in the regions’ museums.

Important noble dynasties gained their powers here, famous artists and scholars lived in Harz. Follow the traces of history, experience Harz from a different perspective! FreiWerk is the ideal starting point for your discoveries.
