The Harz Mountains are a low mountain range in north-central Germany. The range runs for 60 miles (97 km) from northwest to southeast and is 20 miles (32 km) wide.

The region is home to many charming hamlets that have preserved their architectural heritage.

The region is also historically important, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the role of its local silver mines and the sophisticated water systems that resulted.

Included in the UNESCO listing is the Historic Town of Goslar, which makes for a good travel hub to explore the region.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
