Living & Shopping
Housing in the Harz offers various possibilities with living space available for everyone. While some prefer to build on the ideal property in the countryside, others decide to renovate landmarked houses in the numerous half-timbered towns or to purchase a beautiful apartment in one of the Art Nouveau villas in Blankenburg (Harz). The market for rental apartments is equally attractive. In smaller places of Harz County, you are particularly close to nature and often benefit from very low rents and land prices. Those who enjoy the bubbly small town life should consider Osterwieck, Ballenstedt, Harzgerode, Thale, Blankenburg (Harz), the town of Falkenstein/Harz or Oberharz am Brocken.
Maybe you will soon live in one of the many climatic health resorts or in one of the historic cities of our country ...
If you are looking for a special shopping experience with small boutiques, cozy winding shopping streets and an offer off the mainstream, then the Harz is the place for you. The wonderful half-timbered towns promise a unique environment, whether you start your shopping spree in Wernigerode right in front of the historic town hall or browsing the specialized shops at Finkenherd in Quedlinburg. For those shoppers who prefer a more concentrated shopping experience there are the Nordharzcenter in Blankenburg (Harz) or the Mettehof in Quedlinburg. Halberstadt offers an urban atmosphere with trams and tall buildings. In addition to numerous retail outlets, the center of the district capital is also home to the names of the big chains on the promenade around the market square. No matter where you want to go, there is enough parking space available and the district-wide connection by public transport is secured in the long term.
