Bad Lauerberg is located South in the Upper Harz area and is surrounded by green hills of the Harz nature park. The Hotel Panoramic is the ideal starting point to explore the South of the Harz region. We would like to introduce you to the most amazing trips in this region in our hotel blog.
The Hausberg in Bad Lauterberg with the fort Lutterberg
The mountain Hausberg with the fort Lutterberg is probably the most popular sight and the most beautiful day trip in Bad Lauterberg. Since 1954 visitors take the fort´s cable car from the city centre to the peak of the Hausberg (do not worry: the cable car was renovated in 2000). With a gradient of 63% the fort´s cable car is the steepest double chair lift in the whole of Germany. On top of the Hausberg you can visit the ruins of the fort Lutterberg and enjoy the beautiful view on the city and the surrounding mountains from the restaurant´s terrace.
Bismarckturm Bad Lauterberg
The monument Bismarck tower (Bismarckturm) is another popular destination in Bad Lauterberg. You can go on a lovely hike to the tower starting in the city centre. We recommend the 1.3-mile-long hiking trial via the path ‘Lönsweg’ which takes you past the building of the association for environmental protection ‘Naturfreundehaus’.
But please don´t underestimate the hike to the Bismarck tower since you have to overcome 820 ft. of altitude. Book an affordable room for your hiking trip through the Harz Mountain at our hotel.
Oder Dam and Oder Reservoir
You can reach the Oder Dam and the Oder Reservoir on a short walk from the Hotel Panoramic. This route is not a big challenge for experienced hikers but a beautiful hiking tour for families with children. You find lovely restaurants at the dam, where you can eat and have a cold drink. For hikers who prefer longer tours, we recommend a hike around the whole Oder Reservoir.
The unicorn cave is located close to Scharzfeld and is the biggest visitor cave in the Western part of the Harz region. The cave offers a special sound event: visitors can go on a journey to their inner selves while being enchanted by sounds of sound bowls, gongs and other harmonic instruments. You can reach the unicorn cave within a couple of minutes by car from our hotel in Bad Lauterberg and is a great idea for a daytrip on rainy days.
