About The Harz:

See website: Large Nature Park area South East of Hannover. Many climbing areas throughout region. Divided into West & East (Ost) Harz. Some areas were formerly closed in GDR days. Discreet forest camping possible for the adventurous. Otherwise, pay camping & hotels few & far between. Schierke or Oker are good villages to begin from. Marienwand [pictured], said to be most popular, is upriver from Oker. In Schierke consider Hotel Konig: Can leave car in hotel lot and walk 2 blocks to catch "Hexenexpress" [3DM] tourist trolley that runs to train station @ top of hill. Rock is in forest across from train station, within 100m. Otherwise, it's a very long hike uphill from the village.
Nearest town or city: Goslar
Directions: Take A7 South from Hannover to Hwy 6 to Salzgitter Bad to Oker or A7 North from Kassel exit @ Seesen to Salzgitter Bad. Will need map to find Schierke from there.
