Two excellent ski areas in the middle of Germany – who would have expected that? The traditional ski resort of Harz
, which boasts the highest mountains in northern Germany, and the centrally located Sauerland
are much easier to reach for many ski tourists than the Alpine areas in the south and are thus ideal for short breaks to an attractive winter sports destination. Snow covered slopes, dark coniferous and deciduous forests, modern lifts, fast slopes, toboggan runs and winter hiking trails.
