It is not far from Bad Harzburg or Torfhaus to the Oker reservoir. In the Lower Saxon district of Goslar, the Oker flows into a reservoir that is bordered by the dam.
Hike from Torfhaus to the Brocken
I love the TV pictures of the Brocken, when you see the storm sweeping over the mountain top and people trying to move forward. For that reason alone, it was clear to me relatively quickly that if I’m in the Harz, I have to go to the Brocken.
