The mountain can be climbed from different angles. Or be driven on the narrow gauge railway. The train is pulled by a steam locomotive. The journey ends on a heigth of 1125 m at the Brocken station, one of the highest stations of Germany.
In the vernacular, the Brocken was called "block mountain" and is the source of many legends. Above all, witches and ghosts will float on the Brocken due to their mischief. The highlight of the Witch celebrations is Walpurgisnacht, the night is from April 30 to May 1.
