Besides its unique karst environment the Southern Harz offer monuments that belong to the World Heritage Sites: The Cistercian museum monastery Walkenried. There you can learn interesting things about the monks’ life in the past, who used to live in the cloister 900 years ago. In addition to a visit of Walkenried it is also worth while to plan a detour to the climatic spas of “Zorge” and “Wieda”.
