Active holidays in the Harz Mountains
Hotel FREIgeist in Northeim is situated quite close to the Harz mountain range. Only 30 minutes by car and you begin your day trip in the lower mountain range of the German “Mittelgebirge”. Visit the towns of Osterode or Herzberg am Harz and the next day enjoy a fascinating cycle tour around the lakes of the “Northeimer Seenplatte”. The natural landscapes of Lower Saxony will soon take you away from the world of everyday! Take a look at our special offers for active holidays in the Harz region.
Are you one of those people who like to go hiking or cycling to clear your head? And it really is true what Goethe once said that only when you have been somewhere on foot, or in other words, through your own efforts, only then have you really been there. Activities out in the open allow you to experience everything more intensively. By moving body and legs, then at the same time you move your mind.
We would like to show you our region of Lower Saxony at its most beautiful! We will provide suggestions for tours, provisions for your trip and a GPS device as well as collecting you from the rail station or bringing you to the starting point of your tour.
Welcome to FREIgeist Bicycle Hotel! No, we have not changed our name. But simply because of the fact that Hotel FREIgeist Northeim is situated both on the Leine-Heide Cycle Route and also on the Leine-Weser Cycle Route then cycles are inevitably just part of our overall program.
On your bike and off you go! Perhaps firstly a tour of the Northeimer Seenplatte, the lake region only 6 km away? For your cycle tour we can kit you out with a mountain bike, helmet and provisions for the day. For all guests arriving in environment-friendly manner by train, we will of course provide our free shuttle service.
A hotel in the forest. Just a moment… a hotel in the forest? Bingo. Outdoor enthusiasts and sport freaks this is for you – you will love it! FREIgeist Northeim is situated on the Leine-Heide cycle trail, the Leine-Weser cycle route, the European Long Distance Hiking Trail E11 and even the Via Scandinavica, a variant of the pilgrims’ route to Santiago de Compostela – just in case you are intending to come by bicycle or on foot ;).
Make the most of your free time together. Burn up your energy on a mountain bike tour, test your head for heights in the ropes course at the heart of nature or take a guided tour of our forests with a local forester. Various modules can be booked for groups of 6-10 persons: check out our pdf here
