Maybe, the Selketalstieg is not the most well-known hiking-trail in the Harz mountains but it is definitely one of the most beautiful ones. A walking-tour along side the wild romantic river Selke is especially recommendable in spring time. At the same time it is a good opportunity to collect a handful of stamps of the Harzer Wandernadel. Moreover, the Selketalstieg offers a lot more than this: showmines, fortresses, museum yards and above all magnificent panoramic views!
