Town hall of Wernigerode.


The touristic half-timbered town of Wernigerode is situated at the northeastern edge of the Harz Mountains, at the foot of the Brocken (1141 m), the highest peak in Central Germany.

Former seat of the Principality of Stolberg-Wernigerode, the town is dominated by the romantic Wernigerode Castle, one of the most visited in Germany. Wernigerode is the northern terminus of the steam-powered Harz Railway.
