Best Clausthal-Zellerfeld Hotels

Clausthal-Zellerfeld Hotels

Clausthal-Zellerfeld is set in the popular ski area of Harz, with its large areas of unspoilt national park land, and snowy peaks in the winter months. It has a small ski area with a chairlift, and is the perfect spot for learning to ski, or bringing kids on their first winter sports trip. The traditional town is full of craft shops and historic delights, with glass blowing tours, museums, and many other interesting days out all year round.

Things to see

The snow is a big attraction for those who want to practice their skiing skills in a calm, unpretentious environment, and with a small beginner's slope that offers excellent views, it's a great place to get the family hooked on skiing. Once the snow has melted, the trails become ideal for hiking or biking, and you can still take the chairlift to the top of the mountain for some spectacular views. You can even rent a motorised bike to take you through the trails, with plenty of wide open spaces that provide places to ride. The yodelling contest in early August is just one of the examples of the locals loving their history and culture, and you can learn more about it at the Upper Harz Mining Museum which tells you all about the ways in which the town grew from the industry, and how technology developed over time.
