Great :) I'm in awe with the Harz region. It's nothing less than a timbered paradise!
Nearly any town is an architectural gem between those mountains.

Looking forward to see the rest of your tour. Have you been to the town of Stolberg as well?

I have a question: all those houses weren't destroyed during the last world war and they are not original? Are all they rebuilt isn't? the buildings are very beautiful anyway.

If you read the link to wikipedia you could se that all the buildings are orginal. Just to correct some misunderstandings: not all towns in Germany were bombed in the second world war. The main target of the bombings were the larger cities. Even today Germany have many, old towns that was never bombed.

@Bristol Mike

That is one of the palaces of the old emperor Heinrich the second 11th century. It is one of the best preserved palaces from this time in Germany.

There are around 1500 crosstimbered houses in the old town. Which makes it one of the best preserved crosstimbered towns in Germany

Thank you very much for all your compliments!
Next is the interresting Castle of Wernigerode. The duke of this castle was despite its very feodal look the father of the german welfare system.
