D Harz Osterode Braunlage Kyffhaeuser Osterode
Published: 16/10/2019
About five hours drive from Utrecht (via the highway) is one of the most beautiful areas to tour in Germany, the Harz.

The Harz is the highest low mountain range in northern Germany. The area is characterized by extensive forests, high plains that are partly used for agriculture, deeply cut valleys with wild rivers, streams and waterfalls and large and small reservoirs. Because of this there are many beautiful routes to drive. The asphalt is generally of very good quality. The Harz borders Thuringia where you can also make beautiful rides.

This route of 350km is a must-ride and worth 5 stars
You drive through some of the most beautiful parts of the Harz mountains, there are many curves in this route and driving experience is therefore desirable. You pass several mountain lakes and dams. At the Rappbodetalsperre is the longest suspension bridge in the world for pedestrians (RP15).

The route includes the Kyffhäuser 36 (RP20), which is a 3.8 kilometer stretch with 36 curves with an average increase / decrease of 10% and is part of an official street circuit.
Pay attention to this because there is still ridden hard here, but also controlled by the police. This route is downhill, so if you have time, you can also go up once.
At the bottom of the mountain there is a small biker Café (RP21).

You pass many villages and towns where there is an opportunity to eat and drink, please note that they are often closed between 14:00 and 17:00.

About this region
Dutch people (Dutch: Nederlanders) or the Dutch are a Germanic ethnic group native to the Netherlands. They share a common culture and speak the Dutch language. Dutch people and their descendants are found in migrant communities worldwide, notably in Aruba, Suriname, Guyana, Curaçao, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, and the United States. The Low Countries were situated around the border of France and the Holy Roman Empire, forming a part of their respective peripheries, and the various territories of which they consisted had become virtually autonomous by the 13th century. Under the Habsburgs, the Netherlands were organised into a single administrative unit, and in the 16th and 17th centuries the Northern Netherlands gained independence from Spain as the Dutch Republic. The high degree of urbanization characteristic of Dutch society was attained at a relatively early date. During the Republic the first series of large-scale Dutch migrations outside of Europe took place. The Dutch have left behind a substantial legacy despite the limited size of their country. The Dutch people are generally seen as the pioneers of capitalism, and their emphasis on a modern economy, secularism, and a free market ultimately had a huge influence on the great powers of the West, especially the British Empire, its Thirteen Colonies, and ultimately the United States.The traditional arts and culture of the Dutch encompasses various forms of traditional music, dances, architectural styles and clothing, some of which are globally recognizable. Internationally, Dutch painters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh are held in high regard. The dominant religion of the Dutch was Christianity (both Catholic and Protestant), although in modern times the majority are no longer religious. Significant percentages of the Dutch are adherents of humanism, agnosticism, atheism or individual spirituality.
