I always wanted to visit Wernigerode which is located in the Harz and many things to offer: a castle, many old buildings, a wildlife park and the Hogwarts Express.
We started the day with the Wernigerode castle, built over 800 years ago. Up from there you have a scenic view of the town plus the Game of Thrones theme is constantly playing inside your head!
Afterwards a little walk was waiting for us as we strolled towards the wildlife park by the foot of the mountain. Many cute animals live there: goats, rabbits, owls, foxes, deers and many more, which is exciting for children and adults, but also a bit sad to watch every time. Especially for birds or foxes.
At the end of a sunny early spring day we explored the old town of Wernigerode before we left again for Hanover.
