Transport links

We plan to stay somewhere in the Harz region for New Year and would like, amongst other things, to travel on the narrow gauge railway.

Where would be the best place to stay? We are trying to decide between Goslar and Wernigerode. But perhaps somewhere else would be better. We are going to be travelling there by train from Hannover.

Thank you.

Goslar is easier to reach from Hannover.

But it is, unlike Wernigerode, not at the network of the Harz narrow gauge railways.


Otherwise either town is a good choice.

I would say Wernigerode, Hotel Altora. You can eat breakfast at the hotel and watch them putting coal in the steam engines and moving them in and out of the HSB yards. You can catch the train across the street.
