This morning we experience one of the highlights of our tour - a wintry journey on the stunning Brocken Railway through the snowy forests to the summit of the Brocken Mountain.
As well as being the Harz's tallest peak, the Brocken Mountain is the host of Germany's highest narrow-gauge railway station. Later we descend back into Wernigerode, and enjoy time to explore its wonderful traditional Christmas Market, in front of the Town Hall. Wernigerode is a charming town, with elaborate half-timbered buildings overlooked by a stunning castle, and is brilliantly illuminated and decorated at this time of year.
