The approx. 5 and a half hour hike along the Prinzensicht and the Bodetalblick is considered a difficult hiking route and therefore requires good physical condition as well as sturdy shoes and alpine experience. The starting point is the main railway station in Thale. After about 8 kilometres, you reach the first hiking highlight, the Treseburg of the white stag. Located at an altitude of approx. 460 m (NN), the stamp station offers a wonderful view of the Treseburg below.

Only a short distance away is the "white stag lookout point", which also offers an impressive overview of the Treseburg. From here, you can let your gaze wander over the castle and the long valley while resting on the benches at the stamping post. Of course, this resting place also offers a stamp box (No. 67) for the Harzer Wandernadel (Harz hiking pin). The wide distant view all the way to the Brocken is a real reward for every hiker, which is why the effort of the climb is definitely worth it.

Just 5 kilometres further along the hiking route, the next view is a real hiking highlight: the Prinzensicht. Here, too, it is a good idea to take a break at one of the two vantage points and enjoy the wide view of the Bode Valley, which lies almost 200 metres below. The next viewpoint, Bodetalblick, is a little further on and, as the name suggests, offers an equally impressive view.

The view embedded in the forest is particularly impressive due to its tranquillity, the clear air, the bare rock faces - definitely one of the most beautiful natural views in Germany! The last hiking highlight of the tour on the way back to the station is the Bodetal/Thale viewpoint. From here you can enjoy the view once more before the end of the hike.
