A trip to the Bode Gorge (Bodetal) really has something for everyone. The Bode Gorge in Thale is about 20 minutes by car from the hotel. The trip is always worthwhile if you travel with your family. Right at the entrance to the Bode Gorge there is a true playground paradise for children with a climbing wall, a mini roller coaster, adventure playgrounds and a mini golf course.
You can take the cable car to the legendary Hexentanzplatz (literally “Witches′ Dance Floor”) or climb the rock on a hike. Once at the Hexentanzplatz you can a visit the zoo or take a ride on the summer toboggan run. But you can also enjoy the magnificent view over the impressive Bode Gorge while having a coffee or ice cream.
Of course, you can get back down to the valley on the gondola lift. Once you are there you can end the day in the Bodetaltherme. The spa is located in the immediate vicinity and you can relax there in the saltwater and the sound pool. In the outdoor pool you have a chance to enjoy the magnificent view of the Bodetal once again or relax in the sauna area.
