Frequently asked questions about holidays in a holiday home:
In order to make your search for a suitable holiday home in the Harz as easy as possible, we answer all frequently asked questions below:
What are the advantages of a holiday home?
Holiday homes offer an enormous space advantage compared to flats, which we also present on our portal. Accordingly, a holiday home is suitable as accommodation, especially for families with children or larger travel groups with several people. Holiday accommodation in general also allows travellers to be much more flexible in their time management compared to hotels and guesthouses. There, the breakfast buffet or lunch, for example, are timed precisely, which is often a thorn in the side of more active holidaymakers and tourists. In a holiday home, on the other hand, the daily schedule and meal planning is left to you alone. Another advantage is that holiday homes often have more extensive facilities than flats. Features such as a sauna, a whirlpool or a fireplace are usually only found in holiday homes. If the house also has a garden, you can spend relaxing evenings on the terrace with a barbecue, especially in the summer season.
What does a holiday home in the Harz Mountains cost?
The costs of a holiday home in the Harz Mountains vary greatly depending on location, facilities and season. While the prices per night are particularly high during the holiday season or in the summer months, the prices can drop in the off-season. Costs rise particularly sharply at the end of the year between the holidays due to high demand. While the cost per night of very inexpensive holiday homes starts at 40-50 €, they range up to 150-200 € per night. On average, the cost per night is around 90-100 €. Of course, this is difficult to generalise, which is why we recommend checking the current prices on the websites of the respective accommodation. Often the price can be seen directly in the booking system/occupancy calendar, so that you can calculate the costs for your holiday in the Harz Mountains precisely in advance.
Which sights in the Harz should every holidaymaker have seen?
Of course, there is no shortage of activities, sights and excursion destinations in the Harz Mountains. However, in order to make your holiday in the middle of the Harz mountains in a holiday home of your choice as effective as possible, it is important to be informed in advance about things worth seeing in the Harz mountains.
A characteristic feature of the Harz as a holiday destination is, of course, the Brocken mountain, which is famous far beyond the borders of the Harz. At a height of around 1142 metres, it can be seen from afar and is considered a landmark of the Harz region in many places. A hike or a bike ride will take you to the summit, from where you can enjoy an unforgettable mountain view. If you are not so good on foot or by bike, you can take the historic Brockenbahn train to the top of the Brocken. Other must-see sights are the Hexentanzplatz (witches' dancing place) and the Kaiserpfalz (imperial palace) in Goslar, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If these excursion destinations are not action-packed enough for you, you can get ready for a ride on the monster scooter at the Braunlager Wurmberg or visit the Rappbode Dam for some adventurous wallrunning. Even on rainy days in the Harz or in winter, there is plenty to see thanks to the wide range of indoor activities.
