GERMANY ~ Map - National Park Harz ~

... Lovely map postcard of one of the largest forest national parks in Germany...  a place for nature lovers, hikers, climbers or people who are interested in mining history, Cold War relics, castles... you can choose from over 9.000 km of hiking trails to explore unspoilt forests, deep valleys and lush meadows... a refugee for plants and animals...Thanks a lot Marco!!ヽ(ヅ)ノ
Harz National Park is located within Germany's most northerly mountain range, the Harz Mounains, in the federal states of Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.  95 % of the area is covered with forests, mainly with spruce and beech woods, including several bogs, granite rocks and creeks.

Harz National Park stretches from a low mountain range near Herzberg in the southern part of the mountains, across the Harz massif to its northern slopes near Bad Harzburg and Ilsenburg. It offers the entire range of characteristic ecological systems, variations in height, slopes and rocks. Height varies from approximately 240 m in the north and 270 m on the southern edge up to 1,141 m on Brocken peak. The Park offers an ecologically complex landscape and contains different vegetation zones.
