The Ravensberg – a fantastic viewpoint with great MTB trails

Großer Knollen – The Southern Harz’s equivalent of The Brocken
Großer Knollen is another attraction worth mentioning. It’s a beautiful viewpoint outside of Bad Lauterberg, and can best be described as The Southern Harz’ equivalent of The Brocken. Großer Knollen has to ascents: A long but more human ascent and a very steep but shorter and more technical ascent. Downhill there are some great flow trails which will test your MTB abilities.
