We depart Belgium and head through Germany to the Harz Mountains, where we stay for four nights.

Included Meals

We enjoy an exhilarating journey onboard the steam-hauled Brocken Railway, which takes us from Wernigerode up to the summit of the Brocken Mountain. This is the highest peak in the Harz region and the home of Germany's highest narrow-gauge station. During the Cold War period, the Brocken was in East Germany and very much off-limits to western visitors.

Returning to Wernigerode, enjoy free time to explore its quaint market square and admire the half-timbered houses.
