At first the Chalet looked a bit small compared to rentals I'm used to in Ireland but after a day or two it fitted us two like a glove. Don't know how it works with a party of six doh as it is advertised to hold. The outside is in need of a bit of TLC and the Chalet is also not so isolated and away from it all... Another Chalet is just next door a few meters away as is the Grillplatz & Shutzhause, the place used by Tanne for it's festivities. A gathering with pimped cars and boom music until midnight was a bit of a bummer on Saturday. So keep these minuses in mind. On the bright side, the inside is perfectly renovated, spot clean and well equipped, everything you might need is there. gratz to the keygirl who maintains it. She does a perfect job. The Chalet position in the middle of the Harz is also a great plus. Everywhere you want to go or do is almost on your doorstep, Kyfhauser Denkmal an hour (that was the furthest we went) and the rest between 30 and 40min max. I recommend, The Heinrich Heine way walk in Ilseburg (park at Das Waldhotel) and Der Teufelmauer With the Hamburger Wappen in Timmerode You can then walk the wall up to Blankenburg and circle back through the Forrest. All walks in the Harz are splendidly signposted by the Harz Klub they deserve a mention also. Ass odd it might seem I advice against going up Brocken with the Brockenbahn... It was a huge disappointment and the sight of the endless parts of dead trees looking like a warzone by acid rain did not help one bit. If You want to take a ride on the Steam train I recommend You choose a part of the Selketalbahn between Eisfelder Talmuhle en Quendlinburg. Nature at it's best. The walk between Tresseburg and Thale in the Bode valley is another highpoint. So Yes I can recommend The Chalet im pilzgrund, we had a satisfactory stay there in a beautiful scenery.
