The Miniature Park "Kleiner Harz"
Would you like to visit the entire Harz in just one day? The miniature park “Kleiner Harz” makes it possible. In a matter of minutes, you can travel through our park from the Kaiserpfalz Goslar via the Halberstadt Cathedral all the way to the Wernigerode Castle. The cable car of Thale - just as in real life - soars up to the Hexentanzplatz.
The 60 miniature reconstructions of the most famous Harz sites are built on a scale of 1 to 25. They impress by love for the details. Every small windowsill, each tile of the roofs, every decorative element is an authentic reproduction of the original. The miniature buildings find their place in a landscape filled with little trees, mountains, boulders and meandering creek beds.
Railway lovers will also find what they are looking for. Departing from the miniature Wernigerode Westerntor train station, the famous Harz Narrow Gauge Railway winds its way, huffing and puffing, up to the top of the Brocken Mountain. Numerous models of locomotives and railway carriages run on the more than 400 meters of railway tracks. So, the “Miniature Harz” makes the heart of every train enthusiast beat a bit faster. On the construction site “Kleiner Harz”, children can operate a digger or play hide and seek among the labyrinth, which is set within the park.
The miniature park is part of the “Wernigeröder Bürgerpark” (citizen park). This 15-hectare large former garden show area displays more than 60 different gardening styles and offers several unforgettable encounters with nature.
