Clausthal-Zellerfeld is a walker’s delight. Sitting up in the Harz mountains, you can wander around and through the twinned towns on endless trails that offer challenges and surprises. You never know if you will find old mine markings, a sudden view, or the region’s very special goats. The goats are something of an insider’s joke. The Buntenböcker goat herd is used for making cheese, and they are loosely attached to the town’s Buntenbock resort area.
They wander free through the mountains, and some of them are quite tame and friendly.
