‘Hiking is the most perfect kind of movement if one wants to discover true life. It is the way into freedom.’ (Elizabeth von Arnim)

Hiking is becoming more and more popular, also with the younger. In and around Seesen you will find some well-maintained and marked hiking trails.

The diverse scenery reaches from wide meadows and gentle hills to steep mountain slopes and extensive forests. Leave the everyday life behind you and enjoy the fascinating nature, flora and fauna of the Harz.

Nature reservet "Silberhohl"

The about 2 ha large nature reserve at Silberhohl surrounds a funnel-shaped sinkhole which approx. 7000 years ago originated from the dissolution of salt in the late Permian. Moor arose in the sinkhole. This humid biotope is now the habitat of numerous threatened animal and plant species like water lilies, daisies and sundew. All together 30 plant species and 40 bird species live here. This special karst formation is of great geoscientific importance. The karst determines the natural character and beauty of the scenery and is a testimony of the geological development in this region.
