Explore our Surroundings

The Harz region offers guests a multitude of possibilities to relax as well as to get active. Our location is ideal for daytrips in a region that has so much to offer.


The sand caves are located in the immediate vicinity of the castle ruins Regenstein and can be very well combined as a destination.

The sand caves in Heers north of Blankenburg have always been an attractive hiking or excursion destination. Nowadays, this little hidden place is visited by the residents of the region, especially on weekends. But the striking rocks with their large sandy outdoor area aroused the interest of the people at an early stage. The old Teutons are said to have gathered on the square. It is possible that the first caves were formed in the soft rock at this time.

The path to the sand caves leads through the forest area Heers. In a large clearing you can see numerous sandstone rocks. In pre-Christian times, the Teutons are said to have gathered in this place. But even in our days this peculiar place captivates people.

The sand caves have long been a popular destination for local people. All walls have obvious traces of human influence. The rocks invite you to climb. The soft material also inspires many visitors to artistic representations.
